Start up noise on cold

Hi all my fn2 is having a strange issue.

On a cold morning on the first start it makes a strange sound.

I am not sure what the issue is but it drives fine and there are no other odd noises..

please see attached video

I have the noise occasionally too, ide be happy if it was starter motor related rather than chain/tensioner. They also mention in one of the links where starter motor doesn't engage, I have this too. Sometimes I press start and here something turning but the engine is not turning over, release start button and press again and it starts.
