    that's what it is

    Paul's lover comes to him and says that Bill (probably her husband) "is having us watched". Pauls looks through the window and sees some man. Says:
    - OK, I'll take care of this.
    - No. No, don't. Please. If that's what it is, you'll only make everything worse.

    Breakfast at Tiffany's, movie

    The marked phrase means:
    If that's what it is = If surveillance is what the man standing below is...
    Am I right?

    "That" is probably her husband hiring a private eye to spy on them. Of course, it didn't turn out to be that.
