FAN - So loud!?

Hi all, 

I purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series - 7591 in May 2019. 

For £1,200 I'd say this is upper range for laptops but even from startup the fan is ridiculously loud. I would understand if it was when the CPU was heated but this is literally on start up. I'm a software developer so I would understand if it got loud when I had multiple things running, but this is constant. 

So much so that I was watching a film on 70/100 volume and the fan was louder. 

Separate note but the speaker is very quiet even at max volume which is also a disappointment but I can live with this - fine with headphones. 

Should the fan be distractingly loud? It could be my expectations but for the price I paid, I was expecting much more. 

Any advice is appreciated.
