Whining noise under the hood? on 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

What would be causing a whining noise under my hood, at first I only noticed it when I made turns, left more than right turns, but this morning I heard it the whole while I was driving, worst at first when the car was cold but still some even after the car had warmed up?
