Default Hard Drive clicking

I have a dell optiplex 780 that is less than a year old that started having some slow login issues. After reformating the hard drive and still having the same issues, I noticed that the last time it slowed down,(15-20 min to get into Windows) there is a hard drive clicking noise. This doesn't happen at every login so I can't say for sure. It seems to happen most in the morning after the machine has been off for several hours.

The machine runs Windows 7 with a SATA hard drive. Any ideas of a way I can verify if it is the hard drive. Running a chkdsk now and almost done with no errors.

(Yes, I am going to call support, but the clicking is not currently happening so I'm afraid of the support I'll get).
