Yes that is a good thing that you can hear the fan going as its cooling the system down.
If you have noticed that its louder than normal then you may have to clean the fan blades of dust. It should be a little quieter after that.

Keeping the fans clean is especially important, because the fans blow out hot air and bring in fresh air to cool down the laptop.
Fans attract dust, however, which can slow them down, resulting in a hot laptop.
If the laptop overheats, vital parts can cease functioning altogether.
Consequently, keeping your laptop's fans clean is crucial.
The fan speed on a laptop can determine how it operates consistently and reliably.
You can slow it down or speed it up, based on the circumstances.
For instance, slowing down the fan speed may be useful in reserving processes or during a prolonged slow time.
Speeding it up is beneficial in keeping the laptop cool during ongoing use or high-traffic times. For the long term, find a happy medium for regular use, so you won't "psyche" out your computer by constantly adjusting the settings.
Click on the Start menu and select "Control Panel." Next, choose "Performance and Maintenance."
Select "Power Saver."
To slow the fan speed, locate the slider next to "CPU Processing Speed" and slide it down by moving across to the left.
To speed up the fan, move the slider to the right.
Press "Apply" and then "OK," if prompted.
Hope this helps
