Clicking noise near rd

so i got a new bike around a trek fx hybrid 2018 3 days ago and the day i got it i had a minor fall but nothing too serious but i noticed there is a noise coming what seems to be the jockey wheels everytime the chain moves a little bit.i tested the wheel going backwards and no sound so i think its not the wheel or tire.ialso had one of the wheels trued after at lbs.i have also tried adjusting the front and rear derailleurs and matched them up straight as i could and still the same.any help or ideas would be apprenticed!

Sounds like a possibly bent derailleur hangar to me.

Me too, in which case the OP should have it checked out ASAP. If the derailleur has gotten bent inwards, as is often the case, shifting to the large cog could put the derailleur into the spokes and cause more damage. A local bike shop should have the alignment tool needed.
