Default PS3 HDD Strange Sound, Looking For All Help

Right my problem is with my PS3. I bought a WD Scorpio Blue 500GB SATA Hard Drive, and installed it in my PS3.

Everything is in fine working order nothing is wrong, but the thing is evey so often it makes this noise, that can only be discribed as a "skimming noise" like have you ever fliped the plastic part on an Video Tape, and touched the tape? It makes a squeek noise, or it could be described as the read/wright arm skimming over the disk inside.

I have read many things and am very bothered by this noise that happens every other minute, my friend said that it is because it is new, I really don't think so, but no apperent damage is being caused, or things are not being saved everything is fine, even though I could lose all data (backed up USB)

Really I am looking for anyone that has had experience with this problem, and look for there help in wether or not I should exchange it for a new one, please if anyone can help it would be much appreciated, as I am very worried if it is ok or not.
