Model Y Newbie - Fan Noise

I've had my MYLR for a couple of weeks now, and just noticed a strange behaviour. I'm hoping that what I'm seeing is entirely normal, would would be grateful for any similar experiences, or an explanation.

Yesterday I moved my car around my driveway and it locked itself as normal. When I went past about 30 mins later there was a loud fan noise from the car. I turned on climate, and that resulted in a different fan noise so I don't think it was that. But opening and locking the car stopped the fan.

I did a short 2 mile journey this morning, and the same thing happened - the fan was running about 20 mins later. Again, opening and closing the doors stopped the fan.

I'm worried that if I don't check the fan after a short journey, it will keep running and I'll come back to a flat or greatly depleted battery.

Am I worrying unnecessarily, or is there a problem?

TIA for any help
