Slight tick 2011 5.0, tsb 12-8-14?!?!

So tonight it was cold as it's been since summer here in ny. I took the coyote out and got it up to operating temps. I noticed a very slight constant ticking coming from the passenger side behind the wheel. I did a whole bunch and f research and all I could find is 50+ people with the same problem. Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems the issue the early 11 gt's have is the "stretchy" ac belt slapping the timing cover. I just want to know is it a big deal? Should I bother with it, I have 39,000 miles on it. Is it still even under warranty? Idk what to do. My old 94 gt had he loudest tick ever so ticks really don't bother me long as there harmless to the longevity of the motor. It has only had mobile 1 full synthetic ran in it 5w-20 and only ever had premium 91+ fuel ran in it since its first fill up after purchase. I know the previous owner well. So please give me your opinions and advice because like any other mustang owner I'm ocd about the car and don't want it to have any issues down the road from a failure. It's already on its second mt-82, the local Ford dealership took care of us and put a brand new 2014 mt-82 in because in early 2011 there was a bad batch from China with warped cases. She's perfect now aside from the slight slight tick only at idle.

Coming from by the tire, any chance it's some sort of pin hole size exhaust leak?

well.. the previous owner had cat deletes on it, so that's a very good possibility. Actually that could be it. I have the cat deletes, im just to lazy to install them. its a PITA to get those sorry *** eyeglass nuts off they use on the exhaust nowadays. My 94 has wheel lug sized studs, id just use an impact gun on them, but the new one... forget it.
