K-50, strange sound.

I received my K-50 just a few hours ago. I like the feel of it, haven't experienced so much yet.

The store where I bougth it from are closed, and will open next week. And I have a question that I feel slightly nervous about.

When moving the camera from landscape to portrait, or for any other direction for that matter, there is a sound from the camera house. Tested without lens, battery, power on and off, the sound is there. There is nothing visual though if I remove the lens and move the camera house. If I use the sensor cleaning founction the camera shakes slightly and the sound from the sensor cleaning process is pretty audible?

Is this normal?
