"Owl" like noise when changing from 2nd to 3rd gear

Hi everyone

I would be grateful if anyone could help me.

Whenever I change gears from 2nd to 3rd (and also from 3rd to 4th) there is an "owl" woo noise - its not really loud, but it is noticable when the cd player is off..as soon as I get my foot off the clutch and the gear is changed, the sounds stops. The noise has recently (only on two or three cases) been increasing...but again its not a big loud noise but you can hear it still when the cd player is off

I have a VW Gold MK5, 2007, 40k miles.

Does anyone think this is a turbo problem? Hope not
