Yes, your pedalling should be relatively silent.
If your bike is new, your derailleur cables have probably stretched a little, throwing it's position just as little out of wack leaving it sort of half way between a shift. The store you bought it from should have offered you at least a year worth of tuneups.
You could probably do it yourself, but I'd bring it in regardless. They should go over the entire bike and tighten/tune up everything that gets loose on a new bike from it's first few weeks of riding.
My new KHS Alite 3000 is just starting to make the same clicks. It's my front derailleur, and only makes the noise when I'm in my highest gears on the big ring.
Does it make the noise in all gears?
