Default HDD rattles when started

Hi, my HDD rattle a lot when it starts, and has a light rattle after its done spinning for a few seconds.
I know its my hdd because it starts once my OS loads up on the desktop(my OS is on SSD)
This is my current drive
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive - Newegg.com
I will contact them soon, after I double check to make sure its not a loose screw or something.
