Whooshing sound inside WX300

I just picked up a Sony WX300 as a pocket camera to carry around. But I've noticed something pretty odd about it...

I swear that there is a fan inside this thing :/ If you put your ear to the camera while it's turned on, you can clearly hear the characteristic whooshing sound of a fan coming from inside, in any mode, even playback (It isn't the focus). I know that there probably isn't a fan inside such a small camera. But that's what it sounds like (Kind of like putting your ear to a seashell)

So I just wanted to ask if anyone else with this camera can hear the same thing (In a quiet room). It's not loud enough to be a huge problem, but I just wanted to make sure that I don't have a dodgy unit.

Thanks
