Netbook hard drive "clicking"

I bought an Acer one 532 netbook two weeks ago. Lately I've been noticing a clicking that
sounds to me like the hard drive. If I'm surfing, it's doing this click every 10 seconds or so.
Happens whether on battery power or plugged in.

Tomorrow is my last day to return the netbook. Should I do it?

So, it keeps clicking consistently even after making it past the boot screen? My rule of thumb there is to expect clicking when turning on and turning off a computer. It seems like something is amiss. I'd play it safe and bring it back if I were in your shoes.
