Sometimes the fill valve can vibrate while the tank is filling. Try removing the tank cover and flush the toilet, then check to see if you can stop the noise by pushing down or up on the float assembly. It may be as simple as adjusting the flow rate.

Can you flush a tampon down the toilet?

No, never flush tampons down the toilet.This is why there are sanitary bins in public bathrooms, tampons should always be wrapped-up and thrown in the bin - a toilet is not a bin, only human waste and toilet paper should be flushed.Tampons don't break down in water and instead will expand, thus can block pipes causing pipes to burst or flooding. Tampons can also bypass sewage treatment plants and thus make it into waterways, where they're not only an eyesore but can also harm wild life.

Do singing water pipes mean there is air in the pipes?

If you mean there is a "tone" like sound coming from the water pipes see if it corresponds to each time you flush a toilet. The fill valve of toilets as they come close to being completely filled can vibrate causing a sympathetic vibration on either the cold water line or the waste line depending on certain conditions. The resulting tone can get so loud as to almost be deafening. The solution is simply to install a new fill valve in the tank of the suspect fixture. Hope this helps I had a problem that sounded identical to yours.
