if the hard drive has been making that noise since you bought it then its either broken from new or a natural drive , i have two samsung spinpoints here and i bought both new at the same time and sometimes they do make weird noises but cos i bought them both new i decided to risk it , i didnt put any data on i couldnt afford to loose and i ran the samsung diagnostics and no problems so i chanced it and they are still fine today so me thinks them noises where natural .
As a rule of thumb i say if you havent heard it make that noise before its bad or if common sense tells you it shouldnt be making that noise
