Because we can’t see any image, only a momentary sound, then it comes entirely down to interpretation.
Any talking/chatting sounds are context based

Guinea pigs have narrow airways and can cough if they eat too fast or if they have dust irritating. The occasional cough is fine but if it happens a lot, the a vet check needs to be done.

dust from hay or bedding is a common cause of airway irritation. Also things like candles, sprays, perfumes, air fresheners need to be avoided around them
