Mine has done that since I bought the car 4 years ago.(Every time it is below 30 degrees or so) I worried about it for the first year I owned my car. I figured I would wait to repalce the starter when it goes altogether. I believe the lubrication dries out and the starter hangs a bit. A little annoying but nothing to get too concerned about IMHO.
