Arrow Degu Behaviour Query

Hello I have 2 male degus that I rehomed form another house after being owned for 2 years.
They have been rather happy for several weeks but I have noticed they are starting to chase eachother and make very loud squeaks and funny noises.
They don't appear to be biting or stamping.
Also one of them keeps his teeth on the edge of their wooden running wheel while its spinning all the time :-S Is that bad? Do your degus ever do this?

Do you have any female degus nearby?
If so males will fight when a nearby female comes into season.
And about the wheel: Im not sure if it's a problem or not... It seems normal but it can be prevented. Just get some sour-tasting spray (bought from pet stores) and spray it on the wheel. If he keeps chewing I'd purchase a plastic wheel, it will probably need replacing every now and then but is safe.

Then again I'm new to degus haha
