    which is right?

    I don't have any alternative:I must squeal on her to solve this problem.
    I don't have any alternative way: I must squeal on her to solve this problem.
    Here what I am trying to ask is"should I say only aternative or alternative way?"
    Second is "should I say "squeal on her" or "squeal about her"?

    "I don't have any alternative" {course of action >>implied}

    You squeal on someone when you inform the authorities about them

    You squeal about someone when you are complaining about them.
