Since the power steering systems in most cars is hydraulically assisted, and given that you're noticing the sound when you turn your steering wheel, I think it's safe to assume that you're having a power steering issue. Check your fluid level and report back.

Consult your owners manual to learn about the checking power steering reservoir fluid level.
