Are u sure us battery is good, cause sounds like a discharged battery? Did u try a jump? Try cleaning the battery cables by battery too. Try these things first.

It's a bran new battery and the jump didn't work

Did u clean cable on battery? Try to determine where sound is coming from. Sounds likes starter. If u can call auto stores and c if u take it off can they test it. If so try that b4. Buying one
