Spurting faucets and moaning toilet

We live in a house built in the 1970's with a septic tank running on well water. Everytime we turn on the faucets water starts spurting out and when we flush any toilet there's a gurgling and moaning noise that happens. It's been going on for the past few weeks. We've had very hot weather with little rain, could the well be drying up?

First I would go to the well tank and get pressure readings from the gauge.

Tell us what type of pump you have. Shallow or deep well pump?

Probably should check the pressure in the tank.

Let us know and we can go into more depth.
