serpentine belt & water pump belt

It sounds like my serpentine belt is making a chirping sound(second guess is its the water pump belt) & a mechanic said not to worry about it but I am worried because this 93 Topaz is my only transportation.I know its nothing that will leave me stranded on the side of the road but what do you think?To change the two belts plus labor will cost about 100 unless the pully has to be re-placed(which I doubt because it was re-placed along with the serpentine belt about 3 yrs. ago.)It really sounds as though the sound is coming from the serpentine belt but it just makes the sound when its cold.After it warms up then it cannot be heard.I waxed my car & touched up every scratch & so except for this it would be sort of perfect & he said my pistons are fine but my car has been burning oil because I over-filled the oil but thank-you for all your help about that issue.It was Belle Tire that told me my pistons were bad & that I needed a whole engine over-haul when I said I had to add oil between changes.
