Should I send in my PS4?

Hello again everyone. I've had a shiny new PS4 for a couple of months that I've been having fun with, until it stopped reading discs last Sunday. It wouldn't take any discs in the slot, and made a whirring noise from the drive every 5-10 seconds. Googling gave me some temp solutions that didn't work, so I called up Sony, and they sent a coffin to ship it to them. Recently, there was a firmware update, which my PS4 downloaded and installed,...and that appeared to have fixed the problem. The drive stopped making noise and now reads the discs just fine.

I just picked up Strider for the thing along with a new headset, and can enjoy those without the drive as well. My question is, should I still send it in? What if they find nothing wrong and send it back only for it to suddenly start it up again? Did the software update fix the problem, or is it likely to stop reading discs again? Should I call them back up?

Any help I can get would be appreciated here.

The one thing I've noticed is that occasionaly, while playing, bits of food that I've previously eaten seem to be coming back up into my mouth, but a bib solved that quickly enough.

    Absolutely call them while you still have a warranty.
