Travis,
It's difficult to say for sure without hearing it but it's probably the cam chain tensioner.
If it's still the stock one there is no adjusting it. The stock ones are notorious for going bad. I'd recommend replacing it with an aftermarket manual one. We keep them in stock and can replace it while you wait.
