Why am I such a pain magnet when it comes to laptops?

I bought a Macbook (white, 13" Core2Duo 1G 80GB HDD DVD Superdrive) from the Apple Outlet two weeks ago).
Last night, I noticed two things:
1. Out of the left speaker, I hear a Velcro like sound each time I open the Macbook and wake it from sleep.
2. There is a faint but audible hiss out of the left speaker that gets considerably quieter when the iSight camera is used. The hiss happens whether the Macbook is plugged in or not.
Everything else on the Macbook works fine. I don't notice the sound when listening to music or watching movies on the Macbook.
I am posting this because most of these complaints that I read a from Macbook Pro users and not Macbook users.
The other (and main) reason is I want to know the best way to deal with this. Is it to go to an Apple store? Call Apple care? Will I be treated any better since I have only had it a short while? How long will I be without a computer?
