Is This Clicking Noise Normal? (Canon g7x mark iii)

So... I accidentally knocked my g7x off my desk the one time I didn't have it in its case. Ever since I have been overthinking every noise it makes, thinking I broke it.  It is still working great.  I have just started to notice this noice when I have click to focus, and I would like some reassurance as to whether its normal or not— the main noise I'm worried about is at the end of the vid. Thank you in advance 🙂

Do you have Movie Servo AF configured?  There's a note about mechanical sounds from the lens on page 169 of the User Manual.

From what I can tell from the video, it sounds like the camera was constantly attempting to maintain focus.  Though there could be something loose perhaps now?
