Mild clunk/rattle when starting from stopped

I am suspecting this is a chain issue and my chain does appear to be a bit loose so I have a project tomorrow to clean, lube, and retighten my chain but I was wondering if there are any other things that could be checked when I do this to clear any potential problems.

The noise wasn't there on Saturday when I road it 45km but it was today so I think the chain has just gotten loose and a bit sticky but I am not certain.

Well tightened the chain, cleaned it up good and then used graphite lube on it and it seems a lot better now. I was shocked at the play the chain had on it so that was likely the issue. Sometime this week I'll go wash it too and get it pretty again.
