Question type: General

The person I bought it from said that cvt transmissions always sound like that. But so far
no other problem just sounds strange and kinda of ennoying

This is a 2008 dodge caliber

It will shift different from a normal transmission, it will seem to rev higher but that part is normal. As far as sounding strange, I'd definitely get the vehicle checked out by a mechanic or someone familar with a CVT.
