Using 5W30 vs 10W30 and changing back won't damage the engine if it was filled at the proper level. You might have some slight tapping like you said, how many miles on the engine/car? You might have had issues before.

Have you checked the oil level yet? Maybe they did not tighten the drain plug and it drained out on your way home.
