Q: clicking noise coming from under the hood. on 2000 Chevrolet Malibu

2000 chevy mailbu-This noise is a clicking noise heard while driving, somewhat slows when car is idleing. I opened the hood and it seems to come from whatever the belt is turning. I am taking it to the mechanic, he seems to think it may be "bearings" and that they can "freeze up" How much will this cost and is this the problem?
