It's probably fine,

Do you see any symptoms like :

Very Slow Speeds than usual

Too much , continuous clicking sound.

Then you should take backup of important files

Then it should be fine,
But still use some software that backups your files in cloud.
I'm using Google Drive to backup a specific folder on my google account for safety. It's great if you are going to just backup documents ,else 15GB won't be enough.

You might experience mild performance impact on your system after using backup software.

Some HDDs may work louder than others. This explain why some laptops with HDDs are "silent" and others during reading and writing emanate quiet grinding and clicking noise.

Optical disk drive in laptop on reboot also may click.
