Default Clicking noise from engine

When I turned the engine on yesterday morning a clicking noise started. It is coming from the passenger side of the engine. The clicking is pretty constant and doesn't change much depending on whether I turn the wheel, speed up or slow down, use the brakes or the car is standing still. I am wondering whether it is an electrical problem. Can anyone help?

can you video it?

does it do it with the AC/defroster/heat turned off? reason i ask is the fan kicks on with the AC. if the fan was clicking due to ice/snow/a leaf/etc. it would not change with rpm.

or is it a click more like a relay? or the AC compressor clutch?

I'll try and video and put it on. Noise is still there if heater is on or off. The click sounds more like a relay, not sure bout the compressor clutch. I'll try and record it and hopefully that will explain it better
