Good that you are taking it in. As for an exhaust leak. You have to remember that there are exhaust valves popping open and snapping shut constantly in the cylinder head/ combustion chamber area causing metal to metal contact so if indeed you have an exhaust leak, especially at the head ( manifold gasket) you will definately be hearing valve train noise from the valve action.
Anyways, lets hope for the best and not speculate too much till they look it over.
