Support for adding a Promethues target protected by user and token through prometurbo/turbodiff

Enterprise clients usually have access to prometheus api protected by authetication with user and token. At the moment connection with such target fails with the following log in turbodiff pod:

418044 1 discovery_client.go:142] Metric endpoints [https://<user>:<token>]
E0417 14:09:22.418064 1 metric_datasource.go:63] Unsupported metric endpoint: https://<user>:<token>
panic: runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference
[signal SIGSEGV: segmentation violation code=0x1 addr=0x20 pc=0x86d698]

Without this is impossible to have the SLO horizontal scaling functionality as we cannot ingest metrics about the services (response time and transactions)

    We do need to support secure modes especially for OCP Prometheus deployments
