Is there something wrong with my fish or my pump?

Hi everyone, I've been caring for common goldfish for about 3 years. I currently have 2 new ones that I brought 4 days ago. They seem very happy in their new home, but they keep putting their heads into the part of the pump the gives out the clean water, then the pump makes some sort of vibrating noise while their heads are in there. I don't know if this will harm them or not. Someone please help! 8ec29393d656b79908086e29a2b2a1c6.jpg

Sorry about the picture, I took it on my phone which doesn't have a great quality but it's the only access I have to a camera right now. Thanks for the advice I'll try them all and fill out the form soon !
