Harddrive making base noise normal?

My WD Caviar Blue 1tb has been making weird bass noises. Usually harddrives make a disc spinning sound when its working but my harddrive makes a bass sound when working. This sound is new to me so I just want to know if this is normal.
Forgot to say its a new harddrive so it was like this after i installed it

  1. If it just started, do a full disk scan either through the BIOS if your system has a utility there or from WD http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?lang=en

    Even before doing the scan, you may want to backup your data now.
  2. Hello,

    First things first, hang-the-9 is absolutely right, back up your data first. New HDD sounds, clicks, noises, are never good.

    Here is a web site that has the sounds different HDD's make! WD is first in the list
