Power steering noise

My jeep was starting up sounding louder then ever with a ....if you were to look at a pretty girl and roll your tongue...rrrrrrrrr, kinda noise. And itd get louder as id go and then i couldnt hear it. Last night driving it made a louder noise at one point idling, then i started going and it literally sounded like something broke, came free, not sure what but once i got to a stop light....it sounded completely nornal. Something i hadnt heard in prob 2 weeks or so. Started it and looked around this morning no noise, except a smell is coming from the power steering house and there was a mild screech from that area. The fluid was full...there were no leaks anywhere...and it sounded normal other then that...no idea whats going on.

Is the pump turning when the engine is running?
