To me it sounds like it could be your Rear shock mounts that are worn. Maybe even a guibo/flexdisc.

If its only when yr going into first gear and reverse then its yr driveshaft making that noise, but if its when shifting no matter what gear then I dont know.

Either way I would get it checked out to be 100% sure.
