My Anti Malware has been blocking a lot of these things recently.

What is this? it's starting to scare me.

Sounds like you have a problem.

As an addendum, if you're using MalwareBytes it may be some kind of false positive due to a recent update: https://forums.malwarebytes.org/topic/180750-gstaticcom-sslgstaticcom/

Why are you worried about gstatic? It's not really all that dangerous. Gstatic is Google's static resources which improves website load speed (in theory) because it loads resources that are used commonly over several websites (mostly google related ones) over other servers so that one website doesn't have to deal with large amounts of data requests on their server (which will slow down load speed). Lots of sites use it. SSL is a security protocol for websites, that's also used by lots of sites, although SSL has been more recently 'updated' with TLS. In fact, Crunchyroll uses TLS for logins.

Essentially it's the MalwareBytes issue that happened today and completely ignore the safebro link, IMO (and several others I know) they aren't very reputable.
