Follow everything in this page Audacity Manual.

You may be recording from the wrong recording source - you want to choose the USB Audio CODEC for recording device in Audacity’s Device Toolbar. For playback device you want to choose your computer speakers.

If the noise persists you may have a bad or loose USB cable. That is common.
