This morning I noticed this thing growing together with my Aloe plant!
I am not an expert in gardening - in fact this is my first plant - but I can tell this is not good!
Can someone please tell me what this is and what should I do?

It's just a mushroom, pluck it out. But I would think if you have a mushroom sprouting your soil may be a little to wet for an aloe.

Thanks! Did it already.
But I water it every week or so. Not that often.. should I change soil? Maybe replace it with one that drains water more easily.

I would water less. See how it does. I rarely water my indoor succulents in winter.
They seem dormant then anyway. March is when they begin to grow again.
Good luck with your new plant, it's a great obsession.

You can add some more perlite or pumice in your media, work it in your soil. That will help as well in drainage.
