haynes manual gives following suggestions under thes headings

tapping or rattling noises

worn valve gear or camshaft
valve clearances incorrect
ancillary component failure (ie water pump, alternator etc)

Knocking or thumping noises

worn big end bearings
worn main bearings
piston slap (noticeable when cold) this is probably it
ancilerary component failure

manual points to engine removal and over haul section of book sorry to be bearer of possible bad news it says piston slap is most noticeable when cold dont ask me what piston slap is may have something to do with pistons or piston rings
