1999 Tacoma 2.7 litre

Started up my truck & drove off right away.
Heard a knock like when I hit the gas, within 1 minute or less noise was gone.
What could this be?
137000 km
regular maintenance, oil change in last 250 km

If it only happened once I wouldn't worry but do you change your oil on a regular basis?

Yes I do change the oil on a regular basis - 5000 km.
Normally I use Toyota oil filters, but this time I got it done at a garage.
I've read that toyota filters have some sort of valve that stops the oil from draining out of the filter, avoiding "dry" start ups.

Is there anything I could check to determine there is no damage being done.

I would go back to the Toyota filter and most likely your noise will go away.
