Sounds in stanby?

Hi I just picked up the console on launch day (Sadly did not get the day one edition) and everything is running fine but when the console is on standby I hear a soft ticking noise. It's not that bad and the noise level varies when it enters standby again. Overall not a big issue but just wondering if it may be normal or it is a hardware problem.

I'm thinking it could be the speaker inside since it only does it when the console is actively recieving power on standby. So far I have not noticed performance issues which is a good thing.

I contacted MS support and am doing an advanced exchange. They told me it was normal when the disc is spinning but when i told them it was on standby they told me to send it back as it does not look like a issue they can resolve by chat. So they are sending me a replacement ahead of time. I will check the new one when it arrives and let you know if it is still making that sound (assuming if the replacement is doing it also then its a normal thing). But seeing as I only got 1 reply it may not be normal.

Okay this is extremely dumb luck but it seems my xbox fixed itself... it is no longer making a ticking noise. I played a game of Ryse for about an hour and the console has been on standby for last 20 minutes without any noise. I tried to cancel the replacement but was told I need to give it 24 hours. So I have one full day to make sure they sound really did go away.
