Start with a valve clearance check. It could just be a valve or 2 with a little extra clearance and as the motor warms up it closes and the noise diminishes. As they say in medical schools, when you hear hoofbeats you don't start looking for Zebras. Check out the usual suspects first. If all of the clearances check out then it is time to look for other causes.
