PC fan started suddenly making a grinding(?) noise, how do I fix it?

So early this week when i turned my PC on it out of the blue started to make this funny noise like if the fan were hitting a cable or something, opened the case and that was not the case (no pun intended) but it keeps making this noise and its really obnoxious. When it happens I usually turn PC off and clean the fan and then that fixes the problem but that is not something I want to do everytime I turn on my PC, can someone help me please. Thank you.

    Something is wrong with it, I tried moving it backwards a litte and when i booted it up it worked like a charm. Thanks!
