On my 01 Sentra, it was caused by a loose heat shield that needed to be banged back into place. Look underneath the car around the exhaust. At one point, I had to tear off a round piece that had rusted off.

check oil level add if required. if oil level good then go to autozone and get a bottle of "lucas oil treatment"...add to oil and this should take care of problem.

without being there to listen to it then it is going to be hard to say what the problem is......but since my 20 plus yrs working on toyota and lexus and depending on the mileage and whether or not you have ever replaced the timing belt......i would first start by checking the timing belt because when the motor is cold the rubber on the belt gets hard and if the belt is streched when first started it will start flapping and will slap against the timing cover and as it warms up the rubber on the belt softens up and the noise will reduce to a less noticeable sound......i have also the wrist pin bushings and the pins themselves that are connected to the pistons make this noise and also if the oil rings are sticking it will leave the pistons loose in the cylinder wall and as the motor warms up the noise will go away.....i hope that this info will help and if you need anymore info let me know with more detail.....also if you could let me and fixya know if i was able to help you in any way and a comment and a thumbs up would be greatly appreciated....thanks and good luck.......have a blessed day...........

sounds like a pulley bearing in the serpentine belt is going out. take it to a mechanic and have the system inspected.
