Take it in to the dealer and have them replace the power steering unit under warranty, if the belt isn't slipping, needs adjustment, or replacement. In rare instances, the rack and pinion assembly may need to be replaced. Hopefully, you used the recommended ATF+4 transmission fluid if you added any fluid to the power steering or transmission for that matter. The use of any other transmission fluid type may void your warranty.

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

I've noticed the same exact symptom in my '01..when it's really cold (20's-30's) it makes a sound similar to a unit low on fluid, but as it warms up, it quickly goes away. I too, would like to find out..cause my warranty has expired and I don't want to have to replace expensive parts trying to diagnose it
