Getting Clicking sound when the computer starts


I have recently observed that whenever my system boots I'm hearing clicking sound. Could this be HDD going bad with bad sectors etc? Is there anyway I can check how my HDD health is?

I feel the problem could have been due to faulty UPS and with frequent power cuts.

Guess u cud easily figure out if it is the HDD indeed by opening up the cabby & listening closely to the sound (or rather unplug the HDD from within and connect it from outside the cabby to analyze better).
I remember using "Seatools" for my seagate HDD. should be similar tools for other brands as well (not to forget tons of 3rd party's available on google)
