    it's possible. . . would that cause it to squeak? might have happened from the oil filter drain.

    Anything like oil on the belt will cause it to slip and thus squeal. You need to clean it off. The easiest way is to spray brake cleaner on it while it's running, rev it up, and drive it around a bit. The squeal should eventually go away.

    And FYI, you have an '05 and if you haven't changed the belt yet, now would be a very good time to do so (just clean off the pulleys first so you don't get any oil on the new belt).
