Brakes click when depress while in reverse only

Issue: 2017 Mazda6
When in reverse, I hear a single click everytime a depress the brake. When I let go of the brake and depress again, I hear another single click. What's the cause of this? Everything else is seems fine.
My cars still under warranty but if it's diagnosed as non-warranty item they'll charge me labour.

Sound seems to be coming from the outside of the car but i can hear in inside.

My 2018 started doing something similar not too long ago at about 12k. I feel like it's the caliper, but I'm not really sure. Haven't had a lot of time to investigate. Nor does it really bug me, just an annoying sound.

As @amati5 helped me understand in a previous thread, maybe it's the caliper pins that need to be lubed? But who knows...

That one click sound is your brake pads moving forward when braking, it does so once it gets loose over time, happens on a lot of cars, some more noticeable than others. Try adding new shims to the pads if it's bothering you or ride it out till when you need new pads.

So it's not something that would hurt the car. Just a sound?

If your pads are still good, then yes will not hurt anything, It's the pads moving inside caliper. If it's constantly clicking when driving or braking then your pads are not seated correctly on the calipers, in that case remove and reinstall and make sure they are seated properly.

Happens on both my 6 and my Wrangler, so I assume it's pretty normal.

Its called "pad slap" and its the normal sound of the brake pads being moved by the rotor and contacting the caliper. There should be small spring clips to help absorb the energy and reduce the sound. Sometimes those clips get lost during brake repairs? Also, dirt, grease, salt, rust, etc. can collect and cause the pad to stick and release increasing the energy transfer and sound. Usually a good cleaning and lube will help with this.
