Take a bar of soap and hold it to the edge of all your belts. Let the belt chew into the soap. If your squeak goes away, that will tell you that it's just a belt and not a pulley. If the squeak still persists, you could try and spray a little bit of WD-40 onto the center of the pulley to see if it quiets down at all. If it does, you'll know which pulley needs to be replaced.
