I'm in the process of fixing a blown head gasket on my 1994 Pontiac Grand Am GT I'm pretty sure the clicking you're talking about is probably the sound of your engine missing.When coolant gets into the cylinders it causes the engine to misfire.If I were you I wouldn't worry about the clicking noise so much as the fact that you're driving with a blown head gasket and ruining your engine.I'd at least get some head gasket sealant from Autozone if nothing else.

If you have have a blown head gasket would the car tick a little?

No. A blown head gasket would result in engine coolant entering the cylinders. You would have steam and radiator fluid coming from the exhaust pipe. Depending on where the gasket has let go and how badly could also mean damaging the pistons and valves, but such damage would only occur at higher RPM's. The "ticking" sound you hear is probably a sticky valve lifter. Change your oil or add a can of Risilone. That should fix the problem.
