Default 2007 207 1.6VTI Slight tapping on cold mornings

Hello Guys,
First, let me introduce myself.
I'm Radu I'm 36 and I own a 2007cc 207, 1.6VTI.

I've noticed that on cold mornings, the car makes a slight tapping/grinding noise from the general area of the timing chain. Not really a lout tap, like the rattle of death issues.
The noise goes away after a few minutes and if the car is started later, the noise is no longer there.
The Timing kit has been changed with an OEM one about 7-8000miles ago.
The engine is otherwise, running perfectly.
Any idea if it's normal for the car to do that noise when started on cold mornings after not being started for a few days?

Thanks in advance!

It might be the rattling of the vacuum pump
it does make a lot of clicking noise

Hi, Mradu.

I think I have the same model car as yours. And I am also experiencing the same problem. While I tried to use pp2000 to diagnose the car, there are no faulty codes shows for the engine.
