Yeah, it just needs time to dig itself into place again. Give it a 2-3 weeks depending how much you ride.

It's been awhile since I got a new sprocket so I don't remember how long or if it even made noise when I got it, but I know when I got a new chain it took a few weeks to stop making noise. Then again that was in the dead of Winter and I only rode on Weekends at indoor skateparks, so I didn't do a lot of pedaling around to help wear it in.
