Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. The usual causes are normal noise from joints and sometimes from fluid in the ear. It would be prudent to see your doctor at your convenience. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine

Talk to your doctor : This could be a hypnopompic hallucination. This is an auditory hallucination upon awakening. This is in contrast to a hypnagogic hallucination which occurs when falling asleep. Both are quite common and may occur in people with narcolepsy, depression or anxiety. Please note that these may also occur in people with no psychopathology.
