This sounds like potentially a valve train noise which is normal upon start up. As the car sits for a period of time the oil moves down to the bottom of the motor. Upon start up, the oil takes time to get to the top of the motor which is what causes this clicking sound due to the metal on metal contact of the various valve train components. This is normal on most cars and is not normally an issue to worry about.
