Why is my 2006 Grand Vitara making this noise from the engine

I've had this noise for about a month, not sure where is comes from but it sounds external and seems to be louder

Thanks for the quick response Scotty, it turned out it was a little low on oil, I had driven the car 9k miles since the last change, thought it would be all right cause I use best oil available, but it has lost prob like half a qt and because of that it was doing the noise. Anyway oil changed - problem fixed.
