The belt seems fine the ribs are still in really good shape.
So what is the pulley called? (Hard to search for something when u don't know which it is lol). Could this be the noise? Can I just tighten the bolt or am I gonna have to buy a new one? I heard some ppl for/against belt dressing.
It's the one to the left of the alternator btw
#1, NO BELT DRESSING!! If it's making noise, there is a reason for it. Fix it.
#2, Since it's not squealing all the time, I'd suspect it's just the bearing in the pulley. Not likely something you could easily replace or re-pack, so a new pulley should do the trick. The good news is, they are really cheap, and easy to replace.
