does this sound normal to you

I just made 840 miles my ss a6 and I just noticed a sound that I hadn't noticed before. The sound seems to be from drivers side head. sounds almost like a tapping rocker. Is this a normal sound I have just missed or is this out of the ordinary?

Does it only do it on start-up?

this was the first time I had noticed it and it was as I was parking it in the garage after a long ride. I just started it up again after a few hours and it is not as loud but it is still there.

Mine has a slight tick to it, but my 01 SS did too. I have been told this is common with the LS engines. I wouldn't worry about it.

My car does have a lifter noise. It comes and goes. Sometimes cold, sometimes hot. The dealer says it's nothing to worry about. My 07 Suburban does the samething but only when it's cold and been sitting for a while. 400 miles on the Camaro and 9000 on the Suburban. I guess this is why we have warranty.
