Harddrive

Question

My hard drive has just recently started making a clicking noise. It does this for about 30 seconds and then stops. A message just recently poped up saying that drive c coudn't be read and the screen went black. I restarted and it loaded fine, but it still makes that click noise. It almost sounds like a chirp. What should I do?
