I believe what your hearing is the "orientation sensor" that the camera uses to tell if it's in "landscape" or "portrait" position. My 7D and XTi both make it too. I would say that it's normal.

+1 - it's the orientation sensor.

It's a single click every time you rotate the camera - not a continuous clicking sound - almost like a small ball bearing rolling inside a tube (without the rolling noise if that makes sense) - just the noise it would make when it hits the end of the tube
