Do I need to replace 'Fan Belt?'

Yesterday morning when I started my second car, 'Vibe 2008,' the left side of under the hood started distinguished noise coming from 'Fan Belt.' I sprayed a couple of oil, 'Precision Oil' thinking of 'got dried up. Spraying oil/precision made certainly decreased noise of Fan Belt.

There are any cracks nor visible strained signs on 'Fan Belt.'

My question is; should I bring it to the shop for new Fan Belt?

Thanks for your help in advance.

How old is the belt? sometimes you have to look close, maybe on the underside to notice the wear.
Sometimes a worn pulley will mimic belt noise.

Oil would have been the last thing I would want to have on a belt!
Is it a V belt or a serpentine belt?
If it's a V belt most often there's an elongated slot on a bracket on whatever it's driving so the belt tension can be adjusted.
