A you sure you haven't go a dodgy cable or the cable is fully plugged in? Another problem could be that if you were rough with it or messed up a connection a bit, and maybe bent the pins on the sata connector.

Does it show in the bios, if not then the drive unfortunately could have become corrupted, but as long as it is new you can either get a refund or a replacement, or you could try wiping the drive and seeing if it shows up then.

Well that could simply mean that your drive is dead, as often these clicking noises start to happen when a hard drive starts to die or is dead. This could be because the actual spinning part inside could have been damaged, and that hitting something or causing an inconsistency in the drive could cause that noise. If that is the case, that drive is definitely dead.
