Check the clearance. Also take a look at your chain tensioner (of the engine) and check for undue looseness or a tendency to either stick or skip under pressure.

My bike makes a clicking sound as well as all the other bikes I had. It sounds normal to me. Check the valve clearance anyhow even though I doubt it needs adj. :)
