need help with rocker/lifted noise

Ok recently iv been having a ticking noise.it sounded like a header leak so i put new gasket on and no change in the tick so i pulled off the valve cover and ran the engine with it off and the sound was definitely coming from somewhere in the valve train.turned off the engine and inspected to see if any rockets were lose or had any slop in the valve lash .everything seemed to be right.the engine has about 800/1000 miles on it and have not changed the oil yet.i think a lifter my be collapsed ... was thinking on re doing the valve lash a see if it go's a way...here's some specs on my engine

Sbc 389 stroker
650 DP holley
Camel hump heads 194s
XE 284 comp cam
1.5 self aligning roller rocker
comp cam harden push rods

Thanks Rob
