What mileage? Could be any of the pulleys or the waterpump.

Remove the alternator belt and start the engine, if the noise is still there then it'll not be a pulley problem.
You'll have to go further then.
Without hearing the noise I can't be sure though.

A 15mm spanner will get it too. Some have a stretchy belt that needs to be wound on also. These have no tensioner. Depends on your car to be honest.

it has the tensioner on it, i need to untension this can that be done with the 15mm spanner? also when car is warm the noise is gone,when the weather was really cold here the revs at idle were higher when engine was cold but now weather has warmed up it idles lower when cold hence the noise has started ?

Yes untension the belt and remove it. You'd better get it checked at a garage to be sure.
