CHEVROLET CAMARO PROBLEM

1997 Chevrolet Camaro • 65,000 miles

Hi I just put in a brand new AC compressor. I did not connect the electric plug because I didn't have the system evacuated and or filled with refridgerant yet. The replacment went fine but after driving the car for a day. It looks to me like the pully is not turning and the belt is lightly squeeking. I am assuming the belt is streatched out and not grasping the pully enough to turn the pully. It is a surpentine belt. I was wondering if it could be a different problem. And if I could have hurt the bearing of the pulley by not charging it right away. I didnt think it would matter as long as I didnt connect the power. The car is a 1979 Camaro Z28 30th anniversary edition. 5.7. I am going to change the belt tomorrow, but wanted to get your opinion non the less. Thank You
