It could be normal, but that depends. Some drives will automatically stop spinning before the PC shuts off, which removes any such noise, but there are others that wont stop spinning and will produce that noise.

For peace of mind, check it with some drive tools, like WD Diagnostics. But to be 100% sure, I'd backup my data somewhere safe and send it back for replacement if you can.
ok i'll check that Diagnostics

Weird noise from PC please help
Playing: noise.mp3 - picosong The *nnnnniiiiii* sound starts at around 0:04 seconds. The whole audio has been enhanced so you can just about hear it. It only comes on when I am gaming, so it's not any wires getting in the way.
