High pitched sound from D string on 2nd fret

Hi, I bought a ibanez s5470Q recently from ebay and it just arrived. I've been playing around with it for a bit but have encountered a odd problem.

It seems when I pluck the D string on the 2nd fret it makes a very high pitched sound amp plugged in or not.

Someone else told me it might be fret buzz which sounds possible but I have no idea.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: just tested a amp with it and tried recording it, it's almost non existent. The pickups don't seem to pick up the high pitched noise. I can only hear it unplugged though it's so loud that I can hear it from my guitar even when my amp is on.
