Question: valve noise

I own a 2008 honda fit the valves are tappy at low rpm's when shifting. do they need adjusting or is it normal for this engine?The dealer doesn't seem to know about any maintenance or not for the valves. A loaner car that was newer sounded louder than mine though. Thank-you Mark
