If you are able, pull out the impeller and thorougly clean it. Perhaps some sand got into it. Otherwise , contact the company and see if they will replace it under warranty. That noise does sound excessive and not normal.

sounds like a loose impellor. it might be missing a rubber grommet on the ends or just be a poor fit. see if the shop will swap it.

they shouldn't make any noise like that.
