On the right side of the machine there is a large knob at the top. Pull that out and you can wind your bobbin. Don't forget to push it back in so you can sew :)

Not all models are the same.
You will have to refer to the manual to see what needs to be engaged or disengaged.
On some machines, this is loosening the center knob on the handwheel and moving the bobbin pin to the right or the winding knob to the left.
There are threading/bobbin winding guides sewusa.com where you may find your model or one that is similar.

The winding sound is the rubber O-ring against the spinning pulley (back
of hand wheel) - do not let this continue, it will wear out the O-ring.
I had the same problem and I found the shaft bushing of the winder dry and needed lubed. Use oil or spray lithium grease and it should work fine. Spin the bobbin shaft by hand (not the hand wheel) to get it freed up after oiling.
You can oil from the top and should take off the side case to clean the excess oil from the O-ring. The shaft bushing is a tight fit and any dry oil will get sticky and prevent winding.
