Clicking sound lead to other problems? (Attn: Apple Geniuses)

Hey guys.. I've had my new MBA 2012 11 for about two months now, and since I've had it, most times when I close the lid to put it to sleep (usually when I've been using it for at least a half hour), there is a clicking sound it makes, which sounds like it comes from the hinge. It doesn't bother me in the least, and wasn't something I was going to send it back for, but my only concern is whether I should get it looked at just in case it leads to other problems. Could it? I assume there are wires in the hinges.. but maybe I'm just over thinking. I hate posting about something like this, but I was kinda hoping there might be an Apple genius or two on this forum who could answer my question...

Pretty hard to guess via email. Can you take it to an Apple store to let them actually see/feel/hear what you are talking about? You should have it looked at while it is under warranty.

It could be your case if you have one on. My mba does the same thing but it completely stopped after I took the case off.

No, I don't have a case on it... but yeah, I agree, it's something I should get checked while it's under warranty. Although, I do plan on extending the AppleCare... thanks for your responses, guys.
