The 7200 RPM drives are known for having loud noises when installed in laptops.  That is, as I understand it, the reason apple does not install them from the factory.

If the OS is pausing and you're hearing clicking, I would assume that there is a problem with the HD.  Some HD's are just loud though.  Best way to test it would be to mount another HD inside and clone ( your system to see if the sounds and pausing OS problem continues.
