Default New WD hard drive high pitch noise

Hey everybody,i just got a new hard drive,WD blue 1TB and it works good but the problem is that it does a high pitched noise on idle,there is no high pitched noise when it's working,moving files,etc... Is there anything i can do about it or it's just like that?

EDIT: Don't think it's a very loud noise,my mother could not hear it the first minute,it's not very noisy but because i have very good ears (i'm a musician) maybe i can hear more frequencies or something like that,but for the moment it really annoys me.Maybe i will get used to it..

Try another power supply if you have one. Hard drives can be finicky about the power they receive.
