Is it the main engine or the heads? Try having a mechanic take a look at it, your problem could be serious or your tappids might need alittle readjusting.

Valve tap cause


Most engines now use hydraulic lifters and they can leak a little, this causes space between then lifter and the push rod. This results in a tapping noise that goes away when they get warm or fill back up.

Tapping noise - oil pump?


Its possible the oil pump is going bad, but I doubt it would make the noise you describe.
Usually a tapping noise is a valve lifter or a piston connecting rod.
And low oil pressure could cause either, as well as dirt blocking one of the oil passages in the engine block.

Tapping noise in the engine


That noise is most likely cam follower noise ( formally know as lifters), this is common but no normal, it should disappear after a few seconds when the engine is started, talk to the dealer about the noise, he may be able to help even if you are out of warranty.
