Be more specific with make, model, year and mileage that will help a lot. Does it only do it at startup and then go away once it's warmed up? At idle or when driving or both? Just offhand hydraulic lifter tappet noises can do that. You need to narrow down where it is coming from, pop the hood and listen for whether it is a bearing on something driven by the drive belt, or something within the engine itself.
