Its the noise its a light clicking noise? If so its the tappets they work with the engine valves,and that might be a sign of allot mileage or poor maintenance. How often you change the engine oil and filter? If it goes away after a few seconds i will say its fine but keep a eye on it. If gets worst get the car checked,might be allot sludge build up on the oil channels,and inside the engine itself,causing a slow oil pressure to reach the top of the engine
