gtv6 noise - belt noise?

Hello Again -
My GT V6 is now just 5 years old and has covered just 30k miles. A high pitched shrill but not very loud noise has today started coming from the engine at over 2800 rpm. I may be being paranoid bit it sounds belt ish! The car is still on its original cambelt as the mileage is so low and the history good. My local independant said that he thought it would not be worth changing really till approx 40k miles as the 5 year guideline is less important than the mileage, any suggestions, does this noise mean the likely quick onset of cambelt disaster? anybody had similar experience? thanks in anticipation Nick.
