It's hard to say with any certainty what could be causing the noise since there are a few variables at play and without seeing the system or knowing its make and design it is hard to know what could be the cause.
For example, it may be the compressor or the blower. Also, when does the noise occur? Is it as a component starts up or when it is only in cooling mode or after a component has been running for a while.
The best advice is to get a trained heat pump HVAC technician in to troubleshoot it. To help you find a contractor you can go here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
