Well, if you have, then, if the sound is very similar to what you hear in them, then it's...generally ok, except for it being a lil irritating.
My coil whine disappeared when I changed some connectors' places, but it may get back again, who knows. Generally no risk for the PC itself.

But would you classify the noise of mine as a whine because it sounds like a cable or something is hitting a fan but it's not because I checked

It is hard to say... but as I tried to mention, this may be cuz of your microphone. This is not always very ez to hear, and the microphone can change the sound a bit.

Heh-heh, I guess if I perfectly knew, then I would perfectly know where exactly my own one does come from.
One thing that can help you is removing the current video card, and put another thing(s) that takes the same (or more) wattages from the PSU, like another video card or harrddisks+usbs-in or whatever. And if the sound persists, it is the PSU. You said you did not have this sound before.
Another is with a sensitive sound amplifier, I don't know if your microphone is of good quality. But, there is the sound conductivity that might make things difficult.
Anyway, apart of it being a bit irritating, there is low chance that something is soon gonna break, but, like the guy told you, monitoring software can help if there is pending damage, error or something.
You can also see if some fan is hitting onto something there.

Should you replace it? Well, most likely not. But if you want to, ask for this issue the guy who sold you the video card.
If there is no fan hitting onto some surface there, then I don't know what can be damaged, if anything is.
You can also take something like MSI afterburner and watch the temperatures, and maybe some other things. If there is somethinf like high-temperature, low fps or such, it is then when u shoud be worried.
