Probably the anti-lock braking system checking itself. Making a brief whirring sound.

Also, the hydraulic system makes a barely audible sighing noise every time you touch the brakes.

Either that or you fart every time you drive off in your GTO.

I can tell you the brake fluid that comes with the GTO's is garbage.
Flush your system and replace it with Valvoline Synthetic Brake Fluid....big difference in performance and smoothness.....with the crap that comes from the factory you are probably hearing a valve that is full of junk......
