Is there any side to side play in your wheel? Or any unwanted play anywhere else?

It is just a noise no play whatsoever

Is your chain loose to where it's hitting your frame and making the sound? That's happened to me before.

You'll have to play the elimination game to find out what's causing it then. Not much we can do other than make suggestions without the bike being in front of us. Hold certain things when dropping the wheel and try to work out where it's coming from

Front wheel, or back wheel?

is it a sort of vibration noise? unsealed front wheels just tend to do that even if they feel tight since they're cheaply made

I had my front wheel bolts slightly loose. You couldn't see it visually, but you could feel and hear it. Better check and tighten your front wheel.
