You have 4 pulleys in the pic. Can you be a little more specific?

Well if you turn on the ac and it does it..it's probably ac pulley or the compressor..undo the belt and spin the tensioner pulley see if it spins freely. Or ticks as you spin it. My guess it's not the tensioner if it does it with ac on. Someone else may know more.

The tensioner pulley basically freewheels when the AC is off. When you turn it on, you put a load on it. Sounds to me like you may have a bad tensioner pulley bearing. Easy to change. If you hand turn it without the belt on, you can feel a bad bearing. If it's smooth, it's probably your AC clutch.
