TICKING / CLICKING NOISE

2007 Infiniti FX

Noises problem
2007 Infiniti FX 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 39000 miles

I just replaced my brakes and rotors (both front and rear) on my 2007 fx35. Everything seems to be working fine, except that I now hear a light ticking/clicking noise just once right when I accelerate from a complete stop. Also, when I change to reverse, I hear the same ticking noise as the car changes gear into reverse (it seems to be a bit louder here). Any idea what I may have done wrong? I didn't reuse my OEM brake shim cover because it didn't exactly fit the new brake pads. When I forced fit the shim covers, it started grinding on the rotors so I removed them. Can this be the cause?
