2005 Mercury Optimax 2 stroke 150HP fuel injected

Was going about 30mph and the right engine rpms started falling. then it couldn't keep up with the other engine, not going past 2500 rpm's. Then it started making a noise like a loose car pully at speed and idle and neutral, Squeak Squeak. Shut it down and got back one one engine. Strong little optimax was able to get on plane with the good engine. Got back to marina and the engine started but still made that squeaking pulley like noise. Any suggestions on what I could look for or should I just take it to a Marine Mechanic. Thanks in advance and happy boating.
