Got Mac for the first time for 3 months now ... everything works but sometimes it does this click... It does not sound alarming or so. I've just registered here and found a couple of posts suggesting that the CLICK might be a sign for a problem with the HD. Do i have to be concerned?.........

If the sound is coming from the HD which is very likely, it is a sign that the HD is about to die. I highly recommend you backup as soon as you can and look into replacing the HD.
