It is your secondary air pump which comes on for a few minutes after a cold start. You will start to notice it more as you put more miles on the engine.

check your hose connections and electrical connections to the pump. it might not be too late. my friends hose came off for a long time and we didn't notice. popped it on and the cel went off. do you have a cel?
