Discomfort is stuff that is annoying but not painful.So bloating, urgency, pressure. Not sure if noises with no other sensation is discomfort. You did find the technical term for it.It is normal for the gut to make noises when it moves stuff around. It is impossible for it to do that in complete silence, just like your heart makes a noise every single time it beats. Although often the noise is too quiet to hear over all the other noises going on in your environment.
