Usually it makes that noise because it is scared. If the guinea pig is a newcomer to your house, do not stress it be starting to play with it the minute the pet shop staff gives it to you. It doesn't know you, so be patient and let it gain your trust. ---- well not realy because my two ginea pigs squeek 24/7 there just talking to us
