Does not look like something a virus would do. You can run malwarebytes if you think your machine is infected. If it does not find anything you can rename your drive to whatever you want. Also can create a new logo with the autorun.inf.

I think someone at shop made a trick over this drive or used it short time. You need simply change the volume label.
And the WD logo is shown when you have WD software on this drive.
Rename the drive - right click on it - properties - in name field type whatever name you need.

and you could change the drive name?
