does it get louder as you rev it higher?

Yeah, pretty much the valves needs adjustment. Don't worry it's not going to cause much harm, just get it done soon.

if it gets louder as you rev higher its most def a spun bearing on the crank shaft, also known as a rod knock, if you want, you can wait for the engine to kill itself, or you can try and fix it, but it may cost more then the engine itself.

it'll do that. If you keep it at idle and then rev it, it will sound like it did at first. But driving usually cuts down on the noise.

could'nt it be a bent valve?
not if it gets louder as it revs. A bent valve would be a consistant sound.
