Cold start noises...

Good Day all,

First, this is my first diesel vehicle (2014 Lux), so I don't have any experience to fall back on for reference.

Two observations:
1. When cold and sometimes on restart after sitting a bit, I get what I would describe as chain or chain guide rattle for a split second. As a former BMW owner - I am all too familiar with failing guides and tensioners. Is this just something it does until it gets oil pressure or do I need to have this looked at?

2. Cold start ticking - perhaps this is just what a direct injected diesel sounds like until warm, but I get what I would call a "lifter tick" on cold start - I can hear it better from inside the car than out. It is RPM related - speeds up and down with the engine speed. By the time the engine is up to operation temp - no more ticking. Is this typical? What is it? Something I need to address?

Thanks for your help!
