BRIEF "SWIRLLING" NOISE WHEN CAR STARTS IN REVERSE

Lexus Other

2002 Lexus IS300 Sport Cross. Automatic (but has a manual option)

When I put the car in reverse or drive I hear a brief " swirling" noise or " spinning/winding" noise. (Like a kids car toy that you have to wind back and when you put the toy down it unwinds) This happens as soon as I put the automatic in gear and the noise last ~2 sec. Like a fan is winding. The car accelarates fine but the noise is worries me.
Any help would be appreciated.
