Hi there. This sounds like a piston slap sound or a bearing sound. When the engine is cold, the piston skirt will be smaller than the cylinder bore and make the piston slap the cylinder wall until it get hot. The other thing could be a rod bearing that is worn making the bearing have too much clearance until the engine has met its oil pressure. Crank the engine over by hand and try to feel for a hesitation or a binding feeling, but don’t get a binding feeling and compression mixed up.
A binding feeling will have a thud and may feel like a slight tap in the turn cycle. If so, then the rod bearings need replaced or the pistons need replaced. If you need further assistance with your vehicle, then seek out a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, to help diagnose and resolve the noise on start up.
