New Hard Drive making quiet clicking noises, w/ Audio File

Hello! I got a new Notebook (HP Pavilion Gaming 15-cx0402ng) about 2 weeks ago. The drive is making very quiet clicking noises while it’s working or shortly after it stops being used heavily, I’m not entirely sure, but the HDD LED is blinking when it happens.

I’ve already run multiple SMART tests (short and extended), but it always passes.

Could those just be calibrating noises?

There’s no scratching and I’ve noticed no impairment whatsoever. Before getting this laptop I had a Desktop Computer, so I’ve never been so near to the hard drive and the clicking makes me nervous. I’ve already backed up important data.

Sometimes it clicks every few minutes, sometimes it doesn’t for hours or days and sometimes it does it with an interval of just a few seconds

Edit:

I just noticed that the clicking mostly occurs when the HDD is on low workload. Could it be the heads parking after performing a small operation?

This is completely normal, the drive parks the head after no activity for a while.

You can see SMART attribute Load_Cycle_Count, this tells you the cycle number, not sure how to decode this as the number is probably encoded differently, but Load_Retry_Count  is zero, which is good.

Thank you!

I set the APM value higher, so it's less agressive. It stopped now.
