Actually I have seen a few cases of this milage. But either way this is rubbing something on its back side of the belt. I would make hast and plan the change of this belt. Lots of help here to read to do this yourself.

So are the other belts. Could be just one of them. They usually don't make a noise unless there coming apart. Which is rare.But you need to address this problem asap.

I agree with Busted. Also, it could be the idler pulley or the tensioner pulley dragging. If you removed the plastic cover that you spread apart, there might be a worn spot showing. And, you would get a better view of the timing belt.
