2005 ford focus ZX3 ticking?

Can anyone tell me if I need a valve job, from other things that I have read it points towards needing the valves adjusted. My ZX3 has 125,222 miles and is a five speed manual dura tech 2.0. At low idle the engine ticks a lot in the top end when it is cold it is the worst, after it warms up it dies down a bit. When you rev the engine up a little it also makes it go away. So do my valves need to be adjusted?

Also I need a new passenger side motor mount the gay liquid filled one is worn out and makes the car vibrate like all hell, does anyone know of any alternatives around the same price, maybe just a regular rubber? I know the liquid one is available to me on eBay for $35.

And I might as well include the first picture of my car on this forum in my first post so here it is.
