New drive sounds broken

My brand new G- Technology 4TB drive makes a single clicking sound every 3-4 seconds. Is that normal? It does not sound very reassuring. Should I return it to the online retailer - Amazon?

The drive in question. A brand new G-Technology 4TB usb3 desktop drive. Click repeats rythmically every 3-4 seconds.**

Compare this to a 10 year G-Technology 1TB firewire desktop drive. Still running strong. You can only hear the spinning.

Please advise !!!

I hate to pay for the postage to send to Amazon, but perhaps it is worth to change the drive.

edit: no drive was being accessed by the computer. Just powered on.
