First I'd open the computer and stick my ear next to it to verify it's 
actually the drive and not a fan or something. If it's the drive, verify 
you have a current backup and replace it as soon as possible.

Disk Doctor and Scandisk will both mark off bad sectors if you do a 
'thorough' or 'surface' test. But even if this was the case it would only 
be another indication the drive needs replacement.
