Simply drive it normally and you will be fine.
What do you mean by "sounded like a Diesel Engine"? Most modern diesel engines are quiet. Do you mean a clicking sound? That's probably just the fuel injectors (normal).
mechanical lifters probably
Technically, there are no "lifters" in an overhead cam valvetrain. There are swingarms or cam followers with hydraulic lash adjusters that transfer the cam lift to the valve.

My guess is if it's not the DI injectors, it could be the timing chain.
Mechanical lifters are solid lifters instead of hydraulic. Meaning there is no oil inside the lifter to create a cushion.
