Protege - loud when starts?

I am considering buying a 2002 Mazda Protege. When I went for a test drive, everything was good except one thing.

The car had not been started for two days and the engine was a little loud when I started it. I also heard a squeaking sound of belt. The engine also seemed to make soft knocking sound.

After 1 minute, the RPM came to normal and there was no knocking or belt squeaking and the car ran smoothly.

Is this normal for a car in colder temperature or does it seem to be a sign of a larger problem?

No leaks on engine and no residue (small deposits) when I rubbed enging oil in my hand. Also, timing belt has been serviced plus water pump changed.

Thanks
