It's probably the pump if its a grinding as thats the first thing to run dry when you get a p/s leak and thats what damages it. Previous owner may have run it dry at some stage then just topped it up. If it still works then i'd just get it checked next time you drop it in for service as it's easier to swap he thing over than rebuild yourself.

If it's a more of a groan then it's more likely due to the suspension geometry changing as you turn the wheel and slowly loading up one side or the other. But you'll only hear this if you are stationary.
