I dont normally hear a click unless the aircon is on. You do get a noise when you first set off and get up to 12mph when the ABS system kicks in.

The temp does shoot up to half way very quickly. I normally only get half a mile down the road from cold before it reaches temperature. Its meant to as it helps with the fuel economy.

With regards to the two clicks I doubt if there is anything wrong, its probably a relay or solenoid adjusting.
