that sounds like the actuator in a hard drive attempting to engage to me.
Is this a normal sound? I did some further research online, and found out that it is apparently an implemented feature for newer seagate hard drives to increase their lifespan. I did notice that the sound goes away as soon as i start using my pc. If its not normal, going to have to look at replacing it.

the actuator moves the heads across the platters. the actuator moving is normal.
if you have any doubts about the drive the drive maker had a diagnostic program available you can use to test the drive.
