It's only 5 months old.....I think it might be the hard drive? When I turn it on, the screen turns on and stays blue....and something keeps clicking.

Probably your hard drive, but I wouldn't try fixing it yourself since it's still under warranty.

Take it in for repairs: as was said by bphoenix, this indeed sounds like hard drive failure starting to happen.

Agreed, Take it in and ASAP! Sounds for sure like the hard drive.

Thanks everyone...that is what I was thinking too. It is under warranty and I have the applecare...hopefully they don't have to ship it off.

And no worries about me trying to fix it....after I saw sparks shoot out of my iBook G4 prior to getting this Macbook, I knew my Apple fixing days were over.

i actually had that same problem. with my 2.16c2d mbp last month :s ...and yes it was the hard drive that had failed. on startup i would get that ? mark icon show up. Apple just had me take it to a local dealer and they changed it for me in no time....unfortunatly i lost alot of data...including some pics that i took
