Question about 2001 Chevrolet Suburban
Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

DOES IT HAVE A LOT OF MILES ON IT OR MAY BE THE OIL PUMP IS IS GOING OUT? THERE IS A SPRING IN THE PUMP THAT IS A BYPASS FOR HOW HIGH PSI IT MAY HAVE BROKE THAT WILL GIVE YOU LOW PSI.

does it go tick tick tick tick and when it warms up it stops or goes quiet?
its your lifters not getting enough oil
when u change your oil it will stop till that oil gets worn out
you will have to replace the lifters or it can also be a slack oil pump not pumping oil around the engine like it should

Your lifters have become clogged over the years. Its only after the oil warms up and thins out does it allow oil to "pump up" the lifters. That's why it goes quiet after 5 min. There are several different brands of additives on the market that can fix this problem ,unless you have a more serious mechanical problem, which I doubt.Check your local auto parts store for the additive. Just add it to your oil and "wham!" problem solved. Good Luck!

SOURCE: ticking when cold
It could also be the infamous "Piston Slap" common in 1999-2002's.
GM "standardized" pistons or something like that and they did not fit the cylinders tight enough. The pistons "slap" the cylinder walls and make a tapping sound for the first few minutes until the pistons expand to fit. GM would not fix it and says it does not hurt the longevity of the motor ( yeah ri--ght! ) Do a google search for piston slap.
Oil level would help if it is a lifter ticking but will do nothing if it is the pistons slapping the walls. My 02 silverado has been doing this since almost new and the above description is straight from GM and a few visits to the dealership while under warranty.
