Weird sound?

I was driving home and my M3 was making a weird noise. It only happened when I'm on the gas a little hard from 2,000 rpm to 2,500 rpm then it goes away.Not sure if It goes away or the engine sound covers it up. It's hard to explain the sound kind of like a slight grind? The sound is coming from the front idk it very well maybe the fan but that's just a shot in the dark.

Any thoughts?

Thank you

Just had my oil change done. It was making the noise before and after my oil change. I had my car inspected also my guy says everything is fine... He is BMW certified and worked on the M cars. So I have no idea what the problem Is
