Default squeal on passenger side belt?

im hoping its just the serpentine, what happens is, when car is cold, i get a noise from that side of car, after driving a bit, it goes away? anyone experience something like this, hopefully not the beginning to a timing belt, 70k miles..2005 gt

Both the timing belt and the serpentine belt have tensioners and shouldn't squeal. What might be making the noise is the alternator belt that has no tensioner and maybe just needs tightening up ...or maybe not.

My bet is power steering belt - quite common.
