Welcome to VWF!
Its just your car talking to you.
My car does it all the times, cept its more of a cracking noise. Doubt it would be your door card, they are mounted pretty tightly, possibly the hinges. Take your card off and drive around to see if that is the problem.

My hinges were way loose, to the point that the top of the door notched into the body at the top. I took it to the dealer to have them fill and paint the spot, but now I tighten up the door hinges whenever I do any work onthe car.

In addition to the above, lubricate your rubber door weatherstrip with some silicone spray...there is also something from a company called Wurth called Rubber Care, which works the best...but its very expensive.
