It means it's working. Is it louder than normal?

That is the vacuum pump. It is on the passenger side, right in front of the hood hinges. Mine makes a lot of noise while it is on as well. It should eventually turn off. If it doesn't, it generally means that you have a vacuum leak.

Does your heater work correctly, or does it only have defrost?

Its working but its taking a while for it to change settings when you turn the dial so there must be a air leak somewhere.
