Inconsistent layering along y-axis

Inconsistent layering along y-axis


Hello! I have the Prusa i3 mk3s+ and recently my prints have been having trouble along the y-axis. I have checked the pulleys and nothing seems to be wrong. The firmware is not the latest (as certain problems arose when updating) so I am not sure if this could be the problem. I am unsure how to continue and any help is appreciated!

That looks like the Toothed pulley on the motor shaft has loose grub screws. 
One grub screw should be facing the centre of the flat section of the motor shaft, and the other grub screw should be fastened against the side of the shaft.
