Metallic rattle only at certain speeds

Hey, I'm new to this forum and I just need help figuring out an issue.

Bought my Prelude last May its been fine since then although for the past month or so, when I reach my speeds of 50-55km I hear a rattle from my car. I also hear it when Im at 80 k/hr but its not at a certain RPM. Would there be a certain vibration at a speed, or at an RPM (say 4000 rpm).

Its a metallic rattle sound and just around those speeds. I've hit them in different gears for example 2nd and 3rd gear to reach 50k/hr. Its just frustrating to hear all the time when the speed limit is 50.

Any help is appreciated!

Also, could it be a wheel bearing issue? I've also just started hearing a chirping noise when i get to higher speeds on my rear driver side and the rattle could also becoming from the rear (hard to tell).
