I have several routers and only one of them has RIP v2 enable on it. Will it send advertisement out of its interfaces? If yes, isn't that traffic a waste of bandwidth? Thanks

If RIPv2 is stateless/not neighbor aware, so when enabled it will advertise it routes. If there is no need for RIPv2 you should disable this. Also for security.

Yes, it will send advertisements periodically (default: every 30s). v2 sends multicasts, not broadcasts.
If only one router sends update it doesn't make any sense. Besides - it should be used as a learning routing protocol, not production one (convergence time, reaction to changes, etc). Either use newer routing protocol or don't use it at all.

It's not being used so you should just remove it as mentioned above.

I just discovered that 2 of the routers are running RIPv2. But when I did the sh ip ro, I don't see RIP routes. I only see EIGRP which is running for all routers.

"EIGRP over takes RIP" - provided you have Cisco equipment.
RIP routes are not installed because because it has higher administrative distance (120 vs 90).
Just disable it.

EIGRP is only available on Cisco equipment.
