Default windshield noise

when driving on the interstate, the passenger side of my windshield makes a crackling noise. it kinda sounds like the windshield is breaking, but its not. there are no cracks in it at all. i am pretty sure that its the original one but i wont guarantee it. i noticed the sound several months ago back in the warm weather and it is worse now that its cold.

a friend rode with me and put pressure on the inside of the windshield and the noise didnt stop or even change. the door isnt rattling nor is any of the interior plastic stuff.

im out of ideas. any help please
