popping sound in throat

I am 29 years old, male, healthy. About a year ago, I began hearing a soft popping or clicking noise in my throat when I exhale while lying on my back: one little pop each time I exhale. This happens (for the most part) only when I lie on my back; and it only happens sometimes. Because I sleep lying on my back, the popping is annoying! Does anyone know what causes it? I think it may be related to mucus in the throat -- and sometimes by "snarfing," as we do to draw down mucus, I can make it temporarily stop. But that's just a thought: I am really not sure what causes it. Would love to be able to control it. Thanks.
