Popping Sound

Hi Guys, I was wondering if you could help me figure something out. Sometimes when I start up the engine, I hear a single faint pop like someone hit the top of a bucket. I can't replicate it at will, and it's only on ignition, doesn't matter if the car is hot or cold. 2004 SLK32 with 62k miles. I had a suspicion it was the doors opening in the A/C System on startup, but I can't be sure. Anyone else run into this?

Also, my left headlight goes out sometimes, as soon as I flick it off and on, it comes back up. I can't replicate this either, although I feel like it happens more when I turn a hard left, if that makes sense.

Any input would be great.
