Very normal , your belt has slack in it and at times when you shut the engine off if one cam is at the top of the lobe on the spring then it turns slightly and you get slack in the belt , or the engine kicks back a little shitting it off and you get slack perfectly normal

I wouldnt start spending bunch of money on things that are not bad , you know what needs to be done next
