Could be the alternator belt or maybe even the serpentine if the tensioner isn't working properly.

Is it worse when the engne is cold?? Belts actually get a bit tighter as engine warms up...

Did you just recently have the brakes worked on or brake pads replaced?

It's not tire chirp it's not the brakes but i did just put ceramic pads and drilled and slotted rotors on. And it is mostly during the first 10 minutes of driving. It's probably what crewzin said. That's a lot I'll have to take a look at it!
