Hi! I just bought a brand new WD blue this morning and when I was trying to install it, it made a weird noise that stopped when I moved the hard disk. Later when I continue with the installation I moved it a little bit and it made that noise again. Should I return it or is this normal? I have never heard this type of sound, is this considered coil whine ?

Thank you for the replies! I checked hard disk sentinel and Crystal disk info and the health status appears as perfect and there hasnt been any other sound. I will still take it to the place i bought so they can check it out.
