Shrilling noise in ear.

I am experiencing a light (but constant) shrilling noise in my Left Ear since around 4 days now. I take very good care of my ears & am never ever exposed to Loud/Harsh Music at all.. Is this shrilling noise a symptom of starting of hearing loss..?? Could this sound be due to wax collection in my ears..?? Kindly advise..
