2003 zx5 manual engine Help

Engine makes like its going to stall when I come off of clutch in nuetral and only when I come to a complete stop. Rpm jumps up to 1000 rpm then to 750 rpm in a second or 2 and during that time it feel like it wants to stall then straightens itself out.. Any ideas? The feeling is like coming to a stop forgetting your still in gear. But in this case clutch is free shifter is in nuetral and brake is the only thing being applied and its only when it comes to a complete stop when it happens. Only with the AC on.. Under the hood with the AC on I'm getting a tapping noise also. Weird that I hear it on the right side of the engine more then the left it seems, where the AC is . Anyone ?

Thank you, any help
Will be greatly appreciated
