Loud click, But the drive runs perfeclty

Hello, i recently installed a new WD black 2TB SATA HDD and since my first boot up it has been making a loud click with about 5 second intervals in-between when being used, I am worried because I have heard before about click of death, clicking= imminent failure etc, but this doesn't slow down the only problem is the loud click so i am wondering is it normal for these WD blacks to click when writing data or should i stop deluding myself and order a new HDD?
