Check the belt for wear. Also check the tensioner pully and the idler bearing for wear and/or roughness.

Taking forever to warm up, are you trying to let it warm up by sitting and running? If so then it will not warm up very fast. If you check the operator's manual then it would say to let it warm up about 30 seconds to one minute and drive. Driving will warm up the engine faster.

yeah, chances are you need a belt, but you can try some dielectric grease on the ribbed side of the belt, sometimes that quiets it down.
