So my gimbal seems to move ever so slowly to the right while I have it resting on a flat surface going through my preflight checks. Also, the motors seem to make a really high pitched sound, almost as if there's a really high-speed vibration/friction somewhere.

Any idea on these two issues or if they might be related?

I haven't flown my P4P yet but when I've turned it on indoors there's a small drift in the gimbal when the drone is turned on. In my case it goes away in a while though.

That's exactly what I experience, I just hope it's not doing that while I'm up in the air. Hard to tell if it is once up I'm in the air because I assume the motors would be compensating for the movement of the craft.

I finally had a chance to fly and there wasn't any noticeable extra movement in the air.
