If it chirps when you are not turning the wheel, it could be tensioners like the dude above mentioned.

Could also be a simple case of worn belt/tension loss via a loose tension bolt that keeps tensioner in place.

It could also be a failing component on the drive train, so make sure you take a look at it asap before your belt seizes and causes $$$$ in damages.
