Question Valve(?) noise at start-up

My 2K GT has about 12,5000 miles. I have noticed that on start-up (mornings) I'm getting what I guessing is valve noise. It's not quite the same as what I expience with Subarus with the 2.2 or 1.8. A bit more "grinding" noise with the knock...knock...knock. It goes away over 2.5-3k RPM, but is still there when I throttle down for the first 5 min. of the drive.

Anything to be concerned about, any ideas, any opinions about adding a STP type product to my engine oil.

I hope it's NOT piston slap, like some 97-99 2.5 liter motors have. Seems Subaru likes to play with the piston skirt length during production runs.
