Strange noise or feeling

Sometime when my car has been sitting for a couple of days and I start out I feel a slight bump...almost two sometimes very close together. Once I get doing it does not return and will not for some time....and only when the car is stone cold. I have a Manual 6S but have lots of clutch engagement and it never slips...any ideas ??

No ideas, but I notice something similar with mine sometimes. Weird...
