It could be your radiator rattling. There are several threads about this problem with pics and videos.

If it really is your hood, there's adjustable rubber stoppers in each corner (near each headlight). You just twist them by hand.

Which way gives the better results. Turning clockwise to lower the hood or turning anti-clockwise to raise the hood.

Note that adjusting the rubber stoppers will probably cause your hood and side panels to slightly misallign.
