It's impossible for us to give you an opinion on your budgie's sound without hearing it ourselves.

If you want to try posting an audio clip that would be helpful.

Take the time to read the stickies and budgie articles and use your best judgement when it comes to your budgie's behaviors and sounds.

Are you and your brother provoking the budgie to upset it?

Are you moving very slowly and carefully and talking to your bird calmly and reassuringly to help build it's trust?

yeah in fact my brother is even in the other part of the cage and he only does this in the morning but then again when he gets excited and starting his day like a happy budgie he makes noise and starts singing when I approach him he doesn't do it unless I start showing my finger. I don't recall him being aggressive even when I stick my hand inside while changing perches. when I get a chance I will send an audio or video that includes how he does it. the sound is almost and seems like a short growl at first you can't even notice it unless you see him doing it

As he does it when you put your hand near him it may be a fear thing but as Faerybee mentioned, we can't tell for certain.
You have to observe your budgies behaviour and body language and learn to decipher what it means. Watch them from a distance, interacting naturally when unafraid and see how it differs when you do different things.

For example, if you see a certain behaviour when you feed a favourite treat, you will know that it's body language is a happy budgie.

I think it's not really fear since he has still had that curious look in his eyes and I know him that if he is afraid he will become thin and sometimes not moving from his position. I think he is upset for the presence of my hand meanwhile in my face he doesn't even bother, he is even happy to look at my mouth and my tongue lol
