Re: humming/whirring noise help please!!

Noises like you are describing are typical of wheel bearing failure but on such a newish vehicle i'd be surprised if that was the case.
Easy enough to check though, jack up each rear wheel {safely!} and rock the wheel checking for any slopiness or free play in the bearing, spinning the wheel may also emit some sound.
The noise is most evident when you build up speed
