Engine whine

Hey guys i just bought a 2007 jeep patriot limited about 3 weeks ago with about 128k miles on it. After a week of driving i began to hear a loose pulley on the air compressor, or at least thats the theory. Now my engine has begun to have a whining sound, to the point where people are asking if it has an electric engine. All the fluids are good and at the appropriate levels. It is noticeable when in park, reverse, neutral and in drive, particularly in low speeds (10-20 mph). Any ideas on what it could be? Thanks!

Has the Serpentine belt been changed? If not it's over due. Also maybe pulley bearings could cause that.

Not trying to scare, but go to YouTube and check videos for CVT failing. See if that sounds similar..
