Any chance the drive has been changed? If so it will need a heat sensor kit such as OWC sells.
hi no it has not been changed at all i wonder what this will cost to repair my biggest fear a machine 2 years old should have these issues.

Jersey kid, When the fan on my iMac started making noises (which don't sound as bad as yours and at least for the moment it's quiet ) I was quoted £100 to replace in an Apple Store so I'd expect if you are in the US it would be $100
I know it was the fan in mine as I have an SSD so that's literally the only moving part.
