It could be that the white writing on the belt is causing the squeeling. Also check the tensioner for the belt to make sure it's okay

Hello Tamara- you should check all pulleys, serpentine belt tensioner, water pump & timing belt idler & tensioner & alternator for bearing issues- these will often cause squeals - hope this helps- thanks Super Girls Auto.

As always, just looking may not show the exact culprit of the issue. It could be the belt tensioner needs adjusting or a bearing is out. The V-Belt or serpentine belt could have a glaze on it or the pulley could be going out. The problem may not even be related to the Belt.
Take it to your trusted mechanic, you*ll be amazed how quickly they can have an answer for you and you*ll be on your way! Good luck and I hope it*s only an adjustment.
