its just your brain increasing its sensitivity to noises. it could almost be considered a noise floor, or possibly the blood vessels in your ear. as red blood cells pass through the capillaries, they bump the walls a bit, causing minuscule vibrations to the eardrum.

If you are signing in an (otherwise) empty room the sound will echo around you and will possibly sound high-pitched. If you are signing in an empty room then the room isn't empty.

The only time slot one is empty is when you have not received your starter yet. Otherwise you must always have a Pokemon in slot one.
