Hey, I've had my new MacBook Pro for a couple months and it's been running great. I am very careful with handling my laptop, there are no scratches, I have never dropped it. However, today it started my some horrible sound, created by the fans. To confirm it was the fans I downloaded SMC fan control, and when I crank up the RPM, the sound changes. It sounds like something is stuck in the fan, because if I smack where the sound is coming from, the top right, the fans stop, then start again. Help me out, thanks.

Step 1. Don't smack it :)
Step 2. Take it in to Apple and get it fixed

I wasn't forcefully smacking it, only a gentle knuckle tap, I'm actually in the Apple Store right now, awaiting my appointment. I was wondering if anyone else had encountered the same or a similar issue.
