good evening

i had this amp for about one month and a half now... two weeks ago i noticed weird noise coming from the amp i cant describe it but lets say a ( hsssssss) sound

on the clean channel its ok and a little noise come when i add little presence

on the gain channel and this is the main problem its to much noise if i use the neck pickup (with or without presence) but if the tone knob is on 0 there is no noise

when i use the bridge pickup everything is normal

the problem is from the guitar or from the amp ?

Possibly bit of both...amp and pickup. Gain introduces more noise in general.
Neck p/ups are less noisy than bridge in general, unless single coil, which would be noisier, so possibly faulty pickup or electronics/soldering.

yeah its single coil

the amp is new and im busy these days so i haven't play with it more then 45 minutes so can it be from the amp ?

and i forget to say that the noise comes from the amp even if im not playing anything just the guitar plugged in

so i need a nwe pick up or check the wiring ( if its only from the guitar)

try a different guitar and see if you still have issues. If you do then the amp is at fault, if not it is your guitar

unfortunately there is no possible way to get a different guitar all the guitar players i know are playing classic guitar

but im thinking about getting a new guitar soon i just want to know what could cause this

It could be bad tubes. If the amp just recently started doing this. Take it back if you bought it new, tubes are warrantied for 90 days when new.

What amp is it?

take the amp to a music store and try a few different guitars with it.

Have you tried it on a different power outlet in your house?

Yes sometimes "dirty" power can cause noise in electronics : Lights, computers, microwaves, ect can all make noise
