You can use a mechanics stethoscope and place it on the bracket of the idler pulley close to the pulley itself and listen for excessive bearing noise. They are not expensive and very easy to replace.
Thanks for the response. I tend to agree with you as it only happens at cold start in the morning and not usually the rest of they day (its been really hot here). Sounds like it's coming from that area. I'll try the stethoscope or a long screwdriver to pin point it.
