I think it is definitely an alignment issue, and it is really dangerous to keep driving like that.
if the vehicle is a front wheel drive, it is obvious that the front tires wear out faster than the rear, but having wear on the inner side could be due to alignment and poor tire pressure could also be an issue but might not be in this case.
if they are new tires they should atleast last about 20k miles before the metal starts showing up.
have the alignment check done asap, in USA most shops do an alignment check for free or for about 10 bucks, do not use cheap Chinese tires(no offense if some one is using them).
one simple fix can be done by visually inspecting the alignment from the front and back side of the car, there are vidoes on youtube how to align your car wheels, but i recommend a professional, if you have no past experience in working on cars.
