Uh oh

Well, my focus is about a month old, with 1200 miles on it and I am experiencing the rock tumbler noise when switching from 1st to 2nd. Otherwise the car runs well once you get used to the manual style of the transmission.

So does this mean I am grinding up parts of the tranny and it's only a matter of time before something gives out? Is this some sort of burn in for the car? It's my first automatic, and I already regret not getting the manual.

Also, do the dealers generally give a loaner car if the focus will be in service for a few days?
