Just as I indicated in the title; the Macbook Pro(Mid-2012 model) has started making random crackling and clicking noises every so often from what sounds like the optical drive(right side of the Macbook Pro), even when I mute the volume etc. Was just wondering if this was normal; and if not, if there was a way to fix this myself.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), Mid-2012 Model
