just a hot engine after you shut it down,nothing to worry about,nothing is wrong.what you here is the exhaust.

The exhaust is cooling down. No worries, most cars do it.

Not just the exhaust, but also the engine in total and especially the manifold. When cooling down, the part that got hot, are "cracking" or rather giving you this "tic tic" sound. It's just metal cooling down.
