crunch sound shortly after pulling out parking spot

so like the title says, I've been hearing a crunch sound shortly after pulling out of parking spot and creeping through the lot. It sounds like I ran over a plastic bottle. Only thing I can think is maybe the bendix on the starter is hanging? Anyone else have this issue?

By the way the car is a 15 ltz 1.4l turbo.

All cars do the ABS self test. It's especially noticeable in the Cruze. The sequence of events is as follows:

ABS light comes on for a few seconds when you start the car. If it stays on you have a problem.
@20 KPH the dynamic ABS actuator test occurs. It sounds (and feels) like a brief grind as you pass 20KPH the first time after starting the car. If it fails the ABS light turns back on.

Basically as long as you see the ABS light when you start the car and it goes off and stays off your car is working as designed.
