fuel pump high pitched whine

My fuel pump has a high pitched when while it's running - it doesn't stop and is different than the priming sound when you first turn on key.. without pulling the car apart how do I know which style of fuel pump I have. I've seen two listed - my car has the fuel filter under the car - near the rear passenger wheel . the two fuel pumps they show are a BIG barrel shaped plastic thing that barely fits into the access hole and then a small steel version - like you'd see on a typical fuel injected car. If I have the smaller tell one - would it be mounted external to the gas tank or would it be found through the same access panel as the large plastic one that looks like a float for a sump pump.. I've heard the plastic one has a built in filter so I'd guess no external filter but I could be wrong. Car is new to me so I haven't had it all apart yet.... it's a Fiat I know I will have it in boxes at some point

Car is a DEC 1995 BUILD serial 14005 - was sold as a 1996 model - maybe someone can help..
