Noise from power steering.

If I'm stopped at the lights with my hands off the steering wheel, I hear a sissing noise.

If I put a little pressure on the steering wheel, anti-clockwise/ clockwise, doesn't matter, the sound stops.

It sounds like it's the power steering letting off air, while not being used.

My question............Is this normal, or is it an indication that something will need repairing in the near future?
