how old is it? that noise is coming from the cd drive it is probably on its way out or is full of dust and dirt, you can clean it yourself but you probably wont be able to fix as they are extremely difficult to work with and you cant just by a new drive as they have special code that link them to the xbox its in if you remove it and put a new one in you will only be able to play dvd as it will not recognise games because the code wont be there
This could be a magnet issue, on top of the dvd drive motor there is a magnet that can become detatched, the dvd drive needs to be stripped down and the magnet glued back on, this is usually the case if its a grinding noise.
Hope this helps.
If your xbox box it's new I would take it back and get another one, becase you do probable have problems with your dvd drive and it will keep scratching the games. the laser on the drive doesn't work as hard when playing a music cd than when it plays a game or a dvd.
If you don't want to take it back, then play a couple dvds and if it reads then fine then you could try again. it shiudn't take more than ten second to read a game so if its taking longer just get it out.
