Almost similar sound to that video posted on youtube quoted many times on the forum. Problem seems to occur only when shifting from gear 1 to 2 and when coasting to a stop. Will continue to monitor for the next few days before bringing it in to the dealer.
Wait until you've reached 1000 miles before you take it in. And, be sure you drive it aggressively occasionally so that the clutches wear in. Most of us have no problems with the DCT. Give it some more time.
