Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

One time occurrence?

I am unable to pick out any "grinding" noise per se.

Grinding likely a hard drive if you have a hard drive or drives installed.

Could also be a fan. Perhaps some piece of debris "blew in" and then got "blown out".....

Do you have all data etc.. safely backed up and verified recoverable and readable?

If the noise re-occurs try to pinpoint the location/source.

Backup your data immediately.

However, remember that anything you do could cause data loss.

Hopefully it is not too late and that a successful backup can be achieved.

Overall, at this point in time (with three "episodes") it may not be too late.

Then, again, try to pinpoint the source of the noise.
