Something loose in my FA50 1.4

I noticed today that my FA 50mm f/1.4 lens gives a "clapping" sound when I move it around in my hands. It is just like something were slightly loose inside. Otherwise the lens seem to function like it should.

I am not sure if it has had this feature all the time, I just noticed it today. Do you think this is normal or should I be worried?

Thanks, Sewebster. Guess it's the same in my case, and probably then nothing to worry too much...
