1996 Z3 Roadster - Start Up Squeek

When I start up my Z3 when it has become cold (such as overnight) it makes a squeek sound like a belt that has to warm up and then stop making noise. It lasts about three minutes.
My mechanic has noted that it is time for a new timing chain (or belt???) and a radiator flush. Could this be the cause?
It is not a crazy, insanely loud sound, just sort of high pitched whirring.
