2002 SL1
Default Pulley noise

I had my water pump on my 2002 SL1 replaced about a month ago and I started to notice a metallic noise coming from the engine. It sounded like something was loose. I finally located the problem. The smaller pulley just above the last pulley at the bottom of the engine has a loose (washer, bearing, ???) that is rattling against the pully wheel. I can see it rattle visually. I do not know if the bolt was not tightened enough or what. I hope someone understands what I am talking about. Well anyway, I want to know if this is something that I need to be immediately concerned about. It does not appear that the bolt is moving. Is this something I can fix myself easily or do I need to take it to a shop. Thanks for your input.
