Default Weird Sound on startup

When I first start my 2004 9-5 wagon, it makes a weird ratcheting sound for about 30 seconds until it is warm. It then goes away and never really comes back until the next morning. The car has 115,000 miles. I am thinking some chain (timing chain?). Thanks for any help. I have posted a video here(the sound quality is not great):
