Nice vintage bass!
It sounds like one of two things.
The first, as you mention you're new to bass, may just be a matter of technique when you're fretting a note. Check your finger placement - are you pressing down with insufficient pressure? Are you too far back from the fret? It's a common problem when first starting out and our fingers are gaining strength.
Or - the bass needs to be set up properly (the neck may require adjusting). There are a couple of really good guides here at AB or, if you're not comfortable with the idea, take the bass to your favourite tech.
