    Shaking the drive is the best way to silence your drive, it completely kills it, therefore it makes no noise :p

    Seriously, do not shake your harddrive especially when it is on. If the system drive make noise, use software like hdtune pro, or hdparm to change the AAM settings for noise/performance

    The heads should never touch the platters; the clicking is when the heads move off of and onto the parking ramps.

    it says everything is Ok but I am doing an error scan since the benchmark is done. Also if there are no errors does that mean my HD is not damaged? I looked at device manager and it says device working properly.

    If you shook it when it was turned off, then I do not think there would be any damage.

    Yeah, I don't think you have a problem with your drive. If you're REALLY scared you can run a test with the drive manufacturer's tools, but honestly, if you'd done damage it would already be painfully slow to use or maybe entirely unusable.
