Bianchi Via Nirone rear cassette problem

Dear Internet

Today when I was out with the local club, my 1.5 month old VIa Nirone started making a rubbing sound coming from the rear cassette / inside the wheel hub when I was freewheeling - it seems to happen when the cassette is moving independently to the wheel. I'm not very techie and new to the whole bike thing. Nothing's wrong visually and the bike still functions fine, but it sounds like it might be indicative of a worsening problem.

Does anyone know what this would be and if / how I can take the rear cassette / wheel apart? I know it should be returned and looked at by someone professional but after a recent setback I'm a bit fed up of having the bike out of action so if it is fixable I'd rather get on with it.

Also, what's peoples' experience with Evans on this kind of thing? I get the impression they would be pretty disinterested once the initial sale is done.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
