Default 98 ranger 3 liter v6 belts make clicking noises?

Recently I start up my truck when it's cold and I makes a fast clicking noise when it idles then after about ten min or five it goes away and I don't ever hear it Again. It's sounds like its coming from the belt or pulleys. There is a little chunk out of one of the pullys. Anyone know the problem??

What area of the engine does it come from? Top, Bottom, Driver's side, Passenger side?

The only thing that should be making a clicking noise is the A/C Compressor. It's the big giant silver thing on the driver's side of the motor near the top. Have you checked the condition of the belt?
