Check your chain alignment.

Are sure its coming from your crank?
If it is it could be that your BB is slowly going.

On most occasions it could be your rear hub bearings about to blow, thats the noise they make when you put hard force on them through pedaling.

Or it could be an uneven chain? you may need more or less spacers in your crank to make everything relating to your backwheel and crank square and dialled.

Make sure the tire is even on both sides of seat/chain stays.

it could also be a crack in one of your bb bearing races.
i had a cracked race and it clicked, slip your spindle out and check!
