rattling sound in 1st gear on an automatic c230

I bought a 2002 c230 about 3 weeks ago. There seems to be this rattling sound when i am in first gear, but after its hit second or third the sound dissapears. I am not sure what it is. A friend said it might be the bearings in the 1st gear that is causing the sound. What do you guys think? I havent had time to take in and get it looked at. If I do will it be covered under the existing manufacture's warranty?

Get the dealer to fix it. Some models have a 'problem' with the clutch disks rattling in their metal cage.
