Most likely it's the hard drive, which makes clicking noises as a regular part of the computer running. It's nothing to worry about.

If you've recently dropped the machine or it gets really loud, then I recommend taking it to an Apple Store to let them listen to it.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions. Kind regards,
