Default Strange humming coming from the front of my 09 WRX

I own a 2009 WRX with about 25k miles on it, and within the last week or so it's been making quite a loud humming sound (sounds exactly like someone running their a wet finger around the rim of a crystal glass) when it moves backwards. I phrase it "moves backwards" because it makes the noise whether it's in reverse or whether I physically it pushed backwards (motor off and in neutral). It seems to be emanating from the front driver's side of the car. Any ideas?

I've been searching this site and the internet for the last 4 hours, and I can't seem to find anyone that's had this happen to them. All your help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Steve

Nevermind...I was being a moron and using the wrong search terms. It appears that the noise that I'm experiencing is "normal" (even though it just popped up on my car). Dealership here I come.
