whinning noise from engine bay

i went off roading/mudding the other day and got stuck (high centered) and a park ranger pulled me out with his winch. now there is a whinning sound like the gears soung when im L4 but louder. its loudest when the fj is first turned on and it sounds like its more noticable on the drivers side. it drives fine and dont know if its stuck in a gear or if the trans is funked up or what. i popped the hood and it sounded like it was the fan. i just hope someone reads this and can give me some kind of idea. thanks
