weird noise coming from new gaming laptop????

hey guys, my first time on this site.
so i Have an:
Asus ROG GL503VD-DB71 ,with:
-intel i7700HQ
so, really ever since i bought this machine, about a month ago, i have been hearing a weird noise coming from the middle of the keyboard. at first i thought it was coil whine from either the gpu or cpu but i know what coil whine sounds like and it didn't sound like that.

Weird Laptop Noise

refer to the recording attached (turn volume up)
its like a sparatic digital noise that gets louder and softer depending on what im running, for example just simple browsing - its quite but when im producing music or watching a video it can get very loud. at first i didn't notice it, but it became more annoying as time went
it defiantly is'nt the fan as the fans have a very distinct noise that is obvious, this sound is digital/sizzling
i would like to know if anyone knows what this noise is?is it normal? or should i get it looked at/fixed?
please help, this laptop is new and expensive i need help, thank you.

All I hear is fan and hard disk sounds.

It sounds like it might be a bad fan bearing causing that noise. Modern laptop fans are cleverly designed, and their peculiar bearing assembly is a little different than a regular case fan in a pc.
Alternatively, there's a very tiny mouse running in a tiny squirrel-cage and it's rubbing against the underside of your keyboard ....
