Sound once car is started

I have a 93 gt and whenever I start my car the second the car starts I hear a rapid clicking noise but this only occurs for about a second after the car starts and then it goes away what could this be?

Does the sound lessen or quiet down after the engine warms up? Reason I ask is bc my 91GT was a loud ticking noise. My first instict and guess was lifter(s). Come to find out, it was a dang cracked header gasket. That literally was my last guess

If its a starter sound, its more than likely the silinoid sticking for a second.
