Timing Chain

Hi
I have a 2008 1.4 Mini One and am wondering if the timing chain problems affect this model. There seems to be a lot of conflicting information out there and it's left me confused, some say it only affects the Mini Cooper S and others say it affects all Minis. Has my car got the N12 engine? I am getting an occasional noise thats a slight rattle but nothing like the noise I have heard on YouTube. My car has full service history and 47,000 on the clock, should I be worried?

All 2nd gen petrol minis get the death rattle unfortunately.

changing the chain tensioner might stop the noise.
