Exclamation PT Cruiser makes a "TAP" sound when put into gear

sometimes- not ALL the time.... when the car is put into gear, it makes a single TAP noise. not a thump or clunk... but more like a TAP... sounds like a tiny little hammer making a single tap on the undercarriage. it is easy to hear, but not really loud. and it only makes this noise when the car is put into gear from park to reverse or drive.

I don't know how else to describe it....

is this a transmission problem? does anyone else's pt cruiser do this?

on a scale of 1 to 10- how much should I worry about this TAP sound?

2002 PT Cruiser Limited- automatic transmission
just bought a 2002 PT Cruiser Limited, 4cyl, automatic. 86,000k miles. it has no mods that I know of
