check your chain. it could be worn out.

The symptom usually manifests itself when on the small cog in back due to the tighter radii the chain must negotiate... If this is the case, try flexing THE OFFENDING LINK side to side a bit to loosen it up.

There could be other causes, but start with the simple and easy before replacing or adjusting anything unless you're sure of the problem.

Be the bike.
