Hard drive failing?

First off i have a Seagate sshd hybrid 2tb.

So if im using applications or playing games etc. i hear a little 2 second noise coming from my hard drive then game will freeze for 20-30 seconds then return and play fine. My mouse still moves just everything is unresponsive.

Like i opened Archeage (MMORPG) i clicked on my character loaded 100% saw scenery then hard drive made a quick weird noise then game stopped for about 30 seconds replaying sound (but i could move the mouse) then it unfroze and could play just fine.

Any thoughts?
Thanks.

You might be well served to download Seagate's drive health software tools and check drive.

Backup all your files first if you haven't yet then you should download and run the Seagate diagnostic tool and see if it reports any problems SeaTools | Seagate

Sounds like it tested well. You should still back up all non-replaceable essential data to any other reliable format.
