I would guess a serpentine belt or pulley issue. visually inspect while it is running to see if you can pinpoint. also, look for leaking fluids from the water pump or power steering pump. wouldn't hurt to check the power steering fluid.

Mine has done the same thing its a 2011 Ford Edge, first check your power steering fluid first that's the cheapest route. ( that was my problem i went to auto zone it was about 5 bucks) this should save you 65.00 to have it checked out if that's your case it should stop wining.
