Noises - normal?

New owner - 2002 325I. auto 27,000 miles. Are these normal noises?

1. The first 5-10 minutes after starting, I have some lifter noise. Sounds a bit like a diesel engine, then I will get a tick-tick-tick sound once in a while when cold.

2. I have an electrical sounding whine coming from the bottom rear of car. Possible fuel pump problem, or are they loud normally?

3. When I first put my car in reverse in the morning, I hear a slight bell-like clank noise!

I'm probably just paranoid. I'm pretty anal about such things when I buy a car.

Fortunately, I still have the full factory warranty if these are problems.
