Hello, when i shake the camera a bit i hear a clicking noise from inside it. Is that normal?

And i saw today that there is a very small speck or spot on the lens. You can see it only when held in a fixed position. It is on the lower side of the lens. I think i am going to return it.

Yes, that is normal. The SX50 has an orientation sensor in it that makes a little click when you shake the camera. Also, on some cameras, the flash can move a little and make a click if you shake. If the camera works OK and you are satisfied with the pictures, there is nothing wrong with it.  Best of luck.  I enjoy mine a lot.  It clicks also, but works great.
