DSLR Newbie: cluck cluck noise

hi, This is my first dslr (k-r) and i have just received it (body only), lens is still on its way therefore i have not started using it.
Since i have not owned a dslr before my excitement triggers many questions. When i tilt the body sideways i hear a mild 'cluck' noise. Once on each side, that is tilting left i hear a ' cluck' and a tilt on right again a mild 'cluck'. There is no lens in the body. Is this a normal phenomenon?
