I tried looking it up and it doesn't seem like it fits under the 'what's not covered' portion. I'm just trying to psyche myself up to call in case it isn't.
The front belt was tight so it seems like it must be from something towards the back of the engine. Once I'm driving it goes away but as soon as I stop you can hear it.
Thanks for your assistance.
I found this Service Bulletin
Now, since you are still under the initial 3 year service warranty - you might get it done for nothing since it is a Service Bulletin.

A chirping or “squeak” noise is coming from the engine area, usually occurring at start-up in the morning—especially in cold or damp conditions, or a squealing or chirping noise occurs when the vehicle has been driven for awhile (an extended period of time). Duplication of the noise may require operation of the engine for at least one (1) hour, In either of these cases the noise is heard coming from the drive belt.
