Door hinge pops

I've been away, truck has sat for a few weeks. Drove it last night / this morning and the driver door made a pop sound each time I opened it just before it gets to the "notch" for holding open, and when I went to close it. I can't explain it well, just driving me nuts with this one cause its never done it before. Wondering if anyone has similar problem.

lol im pretty sure this popping starts when a strong wind catches the door and it swings open fast and over extends the door slightly, mine also does this but only on hot days for some reason..
