Without more information, if will not be possible to determine the cause of your concern. There are many moving parts in an engine and any one of them can cause noise. It could be a bearing going bad, piston slap, lifter noise, timing chain, etc. I suggest having a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, determine the exact cause of the noise in your engine.
