The scratching noise was always there, but it wasn't noticeable. It's become more prominent lately and I was just wondering if that's normal. Cheers.

Well, by scratching noises you call the normal access sound that a mechanical Hard Drive does?

Or more intense ones as small constant clicks?

Well just to put your mind at ease, use this program (it does smart monitoring and tells you the condition of the drive itself):

Download, install and just see what it says.

If all parameters are Ok, then probably the disk simply had became louder, it's not a defect it's normal.

According to it, everything is just peachy. I noticed the 'access sounds' decreased after I'd defragmented the C partition. Thanks mate!
