noisy hub

I have had my 105/Open Pro combination for around a year but as they are on my summer bike, they have only done a few hundred miiles. I have just become aware of ticking noises coming from the rear hub when the wheel is spun at speed. It can be heard clearly around the rear brake area as I imagine it is being transmitted up the dropouts from the hub. It is not noticable when the wheel is spun more slowly. Although I have just noticed it, it could have been there from new.
My question is, is this something that should be investigated or is it normal for elatively new hubs?

    Further to above, it is there at slow revs also and is not regular but a random continuous clicking. The front hub is smooth and noise free.
