Based on your discription and IF noise goes away with transmission in park, suspect transmission/drivetrain issue .. Possibly low transmission fluid level resulting in fluid *pump* whining, which would increase with engine rpm and be more pronounced while driving .. Check fluid level .. Suggest having 'mechanic' test drive vehicle... Continued operation in this condition 'may' result in drivetrain damage!

Frustrating I bet. Turn the key to on, but leave the engine off. Get out your owners manual (if you dont have it just google a free download) and make sure every warning light that is listed in the manual is showing on the instrument cluster. If you are missing one, that is the cause. If they are all there, have the battery and alternator tested for proper function. Under or overcharging of the battery will result in malfunction of the body control module, which will make it 'think' there is a problem in the vehicle. If that checks out, test the body control module for proper operation. That test is probably more than I would recommend for a DIY, so don't be afraid to seek professional assistance.
