Very hard to say, a whine can come from a lot of things under the hood. From the serpentine belt, alternator, power steering pump, exhaust, transmission or even an air leak around the intake system. I wouldn't think it was the timing belt though, it hasn't been that long. I would check your oil level as some of the tensioners get "wonky" if the oil gets low or needs changing. If you are worried you could just take it to an independent shop and have them listen. Would probably cost less. Without actually hearing it that is about the only answer I can give you.
