Need help please

So i start my car up this morning and notice a squealing noise from under the hood. The squealing noise gets a lot harsher when i turn my steering wheel (especaily while stopped or at lower speeds) Id appreciate any input as to what my problem could be. My guess is my power steering pump is about to go out since the noise appears to be coming from that area.

Check the belt first off. Is it tight?
