what does it sound like when you spin the wheel do you hear little grinding sounds?

Squeeze your spokes lightly together, I bet they are bedding in and have a little flex, which makes them ping against eachother. If they feel loose, try using the correct sized spoke wrench and turning each one 1/4 of a turn all the way around the wheel (I start at the valve and go around), then check for tightness. Repeat as necessary.

this, if your musically inclined, pluck each spoke and listen to the noise, I've used a guitar tuner before for this. it can help if the wheel is to hard to tell with your ear, they also sell a spoke tension tool to measure the tension of each spoke accurately, all the spokes on the front should be at the same tension pluck a few in random spots that should tell you the right sound your looking for.

But i mean, if this is over your head. Just take the wheel to a bike shop. mine only charges 15-20 depending on how bad the wheel is.

It's probably just the spokes bedding in.
