chevy 350 oil pump priming noise?

ok this is the first time i've builtan engine and i went to go prime the oil pump (with a long screw driver) and some oil came out of a hole on the back of the engine! oops! i need an oil pressure guage! ok so i got that installed it along with the water temp guage. and when i started turing it again it was making a weird clicking noise? what is that? did i screw up in not using a proper oil pump priming tool. and i do relize that im not going to get oil threw the whole engine this way (without a drill) but i just wanted to prime the pump! WHAT IS THAT NOISE? ?? please help! respond very quickly so i can get my nova on the road!
