E46 new clunking sound

Hello there! On Thursday, me and my family left to drive about 6 hours to our relative's house which is where we left the E46 for many days, taking another car for daily use. We finally came back after letting the car sir for 6 days and there is a clunking sound under the hood when I started the car. I have no lights on at all. The clunking sound sounds like those cliché engine malfunctions you hear in movies where it clunks, smokes, then breaks down, haha. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

Ok, after about ten minutes of letting the car run, it got a little by quieter, but it is still audible and is idling fine. Going to drive 6 hours back now.
