hi there,

im cam, a licenced diagnostic tech.
this clicking sound is your interlock.
this sound is normal. If you notice that it is louder than normal, than it will have to be visually inspected why and replaced and anything that might be associtated with the louder than normal operation. Loose components attached to it will cause it to be louder than normal.
i would not be too concerned about this, but panels will need to be removed to access the interlock for inspection

I took the car to the dealer he said it was normal. Which I haven't heard it until now? I have had the car for 6 months, only has 13k on it...yes 13k. I bought it with 5461 miles on it. He said the more you drive it you will here little things here & there. Ugh..not what I wanted to hear. But it seems ok, just makes it when I go in & out of park. Otherwise, the car is a dream! Thanks
