In brief: Depends
It depends on what you are describing as a pinging sound.
Usual sounds in the head could be an indication of what is described as tinnitus. Tinnitus can be benign, but can also indicate blood flow across a high pressure vascular bed, such as seen in a fistula or abnormal blood vessels in the brain. It these symptoms continue, it may be wise to see a doctor for further evaluation.
