    It probably means the screen became loose from the plastic frame. Apple still services it as it hasn't been deemed vintage or obsolete. So my advice is that you take it to them to have a look. There might be a charge involved to fix it, so be prepared for that.

    It sounds like a separation from the laminate, resulting in the popping sound. Most certainly in need of repair.

    For a device this old anything Apple will charge you won't be worth it.

    You can open it yourself in one minute and check if just one of the side screws in the display frame or something came loose.

    Otherwise just live with it
