Unhappy Please Tell me this is normal!!!

I got my car on Wed. and it has been running great but when I was on my way home tonight I heard a noise from my DCT when changing any sort of gear.
Here is Neutral to reverse and reverse to neutral.


Here is Neutral to First gear and back.


I hope this is normal if not I will be going to the dealer as soon as I get back from my trip

Do you hear a clunk when changing say from 1 to 2, or 2 to 3 etc?

Or is it just when changing between D, N or R?

Because the clunk is normal for the latter (i.e. what you can hear in your video is normal)...depending on your DCT setting you also can get a slight clunk when changing between drive gears (D5, S5 or S6)...

It sounds like it would be normal to me, but I don't have a DCT.

It happens when changing between D N or R and when downshifting in manual 1
