If you have a lot of miles on the engine, it could be wear. After the oil warms up and pumps the lifter up to normal it will quieten down. It also could be just dirty lifters, beginning to stick. I would run an additive like risilone to the oil for a couple of oil changes( might even change oil 1,000 miles between changes to see if cleaning the lifters make a difference.

SOURCE: replace lifter
Lifters are usually replaced in sets with the cam or rods and rockers, replacing just one lifter, rare, but if it is making noise, then just locate the trouble maker, you can run the engine with the rocker cover off, find the bad one, shut of engine, loosen up the rocker, twist it out of the way, pull the rod out, then go in the hole with a piece of heavy wire, rod, steel, with a cut in the bottom to hook on the lip of the lifter, then pull it out. Put it all back, you should be all set.

first,check to make sure that you have enough oil in the engine.second,that oil is pumping up to the lifters. and last, if everything is ok, you might want to add some type of oil additive to see if that quiets them
