Sort of getting the 28-70 "squeak"...getting a bit worried

A couple of months ago I snagged a 28-70 for under $800 on Amazon from a reputable seller/authorized Nikon dealer. I've noticed that when I use the lens after 3-4 days of it sitting unused, and "rack" the lens with the cap on, it will squeak the first 2-3 times, then not squeak at all.

I really dig the lens and have had no other issues with it, but have heard horror stories about having to send it in for a $500 repair due to the squeak. Is the occasional squeak like this reason to worry? Because now I'm debating if I should:

A) Hang on to it and enjoy it, and not worry, or

B) Sell it now and save the difference towards a new 24-70
