United-Kingdom Mini Cooper SD - Knocking Sound from Engine.

I have a 2011 Mini Cooper SD. Since the temperature outside has dropped and we are having cold mornings, I have noticed a knocking noise recently when I first start the car. I can hear the noise when the clutch pedal is on the floor, and the noise disappears when I take my foot off the clutch. When the engine is warmed up the knocking noise seems to go completely. I would be interested to know if anyone else with a Cooper SD has experienced the same thing please ? Not sure if it indicates a problem or this noise is normal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated please. Many thanks.

mixture of cold air temp cold fuel temp and when a diesel first starts as its a compression ignition engine the ecu starts at retarded timing with extra fuel at start up and the cold air is more dense the ignition sound sharper
