Had same issue. It was water pump impellers rubbing the housing. Always went away shortly after startup. Silent now. At least check this. If no slop in pulley with belt off (remove belt, start car. If no rattle then it's some bolt on component) then tensioners are sticking. Don't just remove them. Some advise special procedure here.
