Default Noise

Hello this is my first turbo car so this could just be normal but I wanted to confirm just in case.

In all 5 gears from 2700 rpm to 3500 rpm the car makes this strange noise that seems to come from the right side of the engine compartment. It sounds like either just air moving over something or through something OR sounds kinda like 2 metal pieces rubbing slightly that shouldnt be.

Does this sound like a possible problem or am I just paranoid?

Wanted to add that it seems to be getting slightly louder and has sorta turned into a slight whistle. Does anyone have any idea?

The noise could be coming from the turbo. If it is, then it's normal. You might also want to check for loose hose clamps and such around the turbo.
