i was having a break, may be a little nap when i came home from job when suddenly, my friend came and lied over my chest. he said, he can hear a little swishing sound from my heart and i wonder what was that! that could be a heart murmur but i know i am not sick. i am healthy and very strong.

Probably quite normal but there's no harm in having a checkup is there? Better to be safe than sorry. Leaky valves in the heart can give strange sounds.

The blood passing through the arteries makes a swishing sound. This is perfectly normal and healthy!
