If it's making a noise that it's never made before, then it could be a problem. I'd use a utility that can report SMART errors (such as DiskCheckup) to check for problems.

It's normal for hard drives to make "clicking" or "chirping" sounds while they're in use - that's the sound of the heads moving back and forth to access data on different tracks. But most hard drives are pretty silent when they're not doing anything.
