Both options can be true. Rubbing noise is not correct and must be corrected, something is amok.
So is it serious, typically not, but in a worst case deal, your belt could fail and that would render you stuck..

I would need to hear the noise to know for sure, lighter weight sound? maybe you could drive it back. heavier friction sounding? Park it. and call the shop.

    It's a lighter weight sound and it doesn't seem to be there all the time.

That looks like a 2.7 liter. Is there oil in it? The first thing I would do is remove the serpentine belt and make sure the noise is coming from the engine and not an accessory. If the noise goes away with the belt removed than spin the pulleys by hand to see which one is making the noise. If the noise is the same with the belt removed than...... These engines have an issue with the oil pickup tube being to close to the bottom of the oil pan. Over time, sooner with less than normal service, the oil will start to sludge and this accumulates on the bottom of the pan. Eventually this will block the pickup tube and starve the engine of oil. Your best bet is to find a good used engine with low miles from a reputable source.

Noise from area of serpentine belt.

The best way I have found to locate a belt noise is to take a can of WD40 and spray it on the belt when the engine is running. (be careful of the fan) If the noise goes away, you know that it is a belt noise and not a bearing. When serpentine belts dry out they make funny noises. Hope this helps, cheers

Rubbing/squealing noise in front passenger side wheel well

Repeat the experiment and rotate wheels at same time. Might be just coincidence and it is actually a belt. My guess would be power steering.
