The microphone is probably picking up interference from somewhere else, most likely your speakers or some other sort of electrical device. If you have a CRT monitor its even possible that due to the way these work the beam that refreshes the screen is causing the interference.

Don't forget though that the atmosphere is full of natural white noise and some environments will naturally echo more than others. While its unlikely that your microphone can pick this up, its something to think about. Microphones are given away for next to nothing these days so its entirely plausible that yours has developed a fault and is cheap to replace.
