Nikon 70-300 VR making clicking sound?

My Nikon 70-300 arrived today. And when the VR is ON it makes a clicking sound when VR is activated (meaning when I press shutter half way and focus) and another clicking sound when the VR is stops (afew seconds after I release the shutter.

I have other Nikon lenses (16-85, 18-200) and they don't make this sound. Is this normal for this lens or should I send it back?
