Weird sound from engine bay

I'm getting a weird high pitch whining sound from the engine bay that will get loud and higher with the rpms. Sometimes it goes away other times it doesn't. I'm completely lost anyhelp will be great. I do have a slipping clutch that is getting replaced soon if that helps

Take off your drive belts and see if the noise goes away

Well it was something in my clutch Which has been slipping for sometime now. It went out on me last week. This site helped me a lot with finding the issue. A lot of people suggested a sachs clutch I ended up going to autozone and getting a durlast for 267.99, when I opened it up today it's a Sachs set. So let's hope tomorrow when I take the car to the shop everything goes well
