    There are two things that concern me. First, it is making noises, kind of a squeeking sound that has become more constant and at the very least is a little annoying. I am going to try and get a recording of it.

    Second, my virtual memory is through the roof. Top reports VM: 7.07G + 84.8M right now. Imediatly after a restart it is more like 3.25G + 70m but still.

    What should I do?

    noises can be normal as long as they aren't too loud. Your VM size is normal, that is OS X for you. Mine averages 6 Gigs and I always leave 10 Gigs free at all times.
