Hard drive makes click followed by woooosh sound?

Every now and again my hard drive makes a click sound followed by a woosh as if its working on something

I've ran Western Digital Diagnostic Tool and it was given a pass.

So are those sounds normal, or ?

The woosh could be a fan speeding up to cool the processor if you have any programs running. Next time have a look in Task Manager processes and Performances to see what if anything could be running.

One of my WD harddrives makes a fizzing noise when it is busy - been like that since new (now 6 years old) other ones don't.

Has the click only just started and it didn't do that before?
