You have air trapped in the cooling system, you'll need to bleed the system to get rid of this noise.

Follow @dave's guide:

Just bare in mind it may take more than one attempt, as the MK2's cooling system is a pig of a system to bleed

Good luck!

Benny

As long as the air does not affect the engine's cooling system if it does it will cause the engine to overheat, if it was me I'd bleed it when you can. Although you can probably ignore it for a little while, you'll just have an annoying noise when revving/starting

Bleed bleed bleed

Air pockets = Hot spots

If you have an air pocket sitting in the head - oh dear - its not usually good news

Now
Air in - means water out usually

or if its had a coolant change/removal/refill it'll just be airlocked

If there is a leak - the air is replacing the lost water, find the leak and report back after bleeding it well and truly

they can be a pig todo - i find having the nose up slightly can help loads

Re: Punto Water Noise When Revving/Starting? : Video

I have sorted this, was outside and just thought I would see what the level was at, I undone the filler cap and the water started filling up as its pressurised (I think) it was full so I put the cap back on started the car and no water noise, air must have been trapped in the actual filler bottle I don't know :L fixed it anyhow
