New Toyota Sounds Odd Sign In

I recently purchased a 2016 Toyota Camry from a dealer, with 5000 miles on the odometer. This was a "demo" car. I got the full factory warranty.
I don't know if what I'm hearing is actually a problem or not. Then I start the cold engine, it has a SLIGHT whirring "rrrr" sound. It runs perfectly smoothly. The "rrrr" sound goes away when the engine is fully warmed up, and it sounds fine.
I opened the hood before starting the cold engine, and tried to listen to where the sound comes from. It SEEMS to emanate from the cylinder head, but that may be subjective.

Your car is under warranty. This is a question to present to the dealer so they can listen to it.
