Thud/Click Sound when put into Park.

Arrived home today in my 2004 Compact. Reversed into my driveway so changed gears a few times. When I put the car into park i heard a short click or tick sound. Put it in park again and I heard the sound. Do not think ive heard it before, or maybe I have never noticed it. Went for a drive 20min later, didnt hear the sound. Is it just the car engaging park. Anything to worry about? The sound is very faint and doesnt sound bad...

Could be a coin in that area. I had coins fall into that area that restricted the lever movement and affected key removal. Others have seen the same issue.

I never put any coins in the pockets above that area, but they were probably floating around from previous owners.
