Is the turbo suppose to whine when to start the engine? on 2002 Volkswagen Beetle

When we start the car in you hear the turbo whine and then after a minute it stops. It also kicks in during the drive without even asking for it (accelerating).

You may have a problem with the turbo control allowing boost when it's not necessary. Get it checked ASAP to avoid damage to the engine or turbo system. If you want to find a VW specialist, here's our directory link for you: https://repairpal.com/directory?address=74021&car_brand_names=Volkswagen

Hello, did you ever have this checked? My vehicle has the same issue, it whines when I start the vehicle, but on hard throttle the turbo comes on. (This I presume to be normal)
