HP Pavilion - High pitch noise, believe it’s a coil whine

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Recently purchased this machine, as soon I turned it on there was a loud noise from the fan. I’ve updated the bios etc as suggested.  The fans aren’t making a loud noise anymore, the only issue is the a high pitch ‘whine’ which I believe is a coil whine.  

please could you advise as a brand new laptop shouldn’t be making these noises? Could you advise if this is a common fault?
