the buzzing or 'whirring' sound is usually caused by the bearings and if its a constaint noise it will normally only get worse w/time. you might want to make sure the drive is secured in tight, could just be vibration. i would give it a little time, if it does get worse (depending on how old this drive is) call the company and get it replaced.

i second that, backup as soon as possible. you are lucky, many times a hard disk will fail suddenly with no warning.
