yes it is coming from the engine area, no check engine light though. Other than that everything seems to be working fine.

Ok the most common reason for a issue like this the belt tensioner internal bearing is starting to go bad,when this issue starts it is more noticeable at lower RPM's and as it progresses the noise will eventually be constant. The first step I would suggest is having the belt tensioner checked out with a automotive stethoscope.
