Oil Change

Hi new here so be gentle I have just changed the oil in my Adam Jam 1.4 (2014) I used 5w30 Fully Sinthetic oil and a bosh oil filter. Now the level on the dipstick is fine and at the hatched bit. But the car makes a tapping sound, now to me this normally means that the lifters are not getting oiled. Though the level is fine, and the filter is a genuine bosch one. Took out the sump plug and drained all the old oil, (just under 4 liters), installed new oil filter and 4 liters of new oil. Run the car up to temp and the noise is still there, all bit it a little less noticeable, but still annoying. Ideas? Thanks
