    As Eidorian pointed out, its either the optical drive doing its job, or the thermal fans that are running at a high RPM.

    Unless the noise is really out of the ordinary/ really loud/ weird, I would not worry about it.

    Even at 5000 RPM the MacBook fan isn't terribly loud.

    If yours sounds like that then call Apple or take it to an Apple store. That kind of noise isn't normal.
