The only thing that would be considered normal is a tiny rattle from the camera lens. Is that what you're hearing?

Nope. The whole thing inside the phone seems to be moving its like really weird. I haven't noticed this before. I made a Genius Bar appointment now.

That's odd. Has it been dropped ever?

Never been dropped. However done a quick search and looks like I am not the only one. Maybe the battery inside or something. See this thread:

Hey all
It was the battery that was moving around. Got it fixed by the genius.

This happened mine too I only had it 4 days
Didn't fancy a trip to apple (80 miles away) so I fixed it myself.
You'll need a suction cup screwdriver and splodger tool. Only took 2 minutes
Remove screen and apply pressure to battery to make it stick.
