Sounds like possibly an upper strut mount, control arm bushing or something else in the suspension. It could be potentially dangerous if something was to come apart, so make sure you get it checked out soon.
I have a 2005 and mine was making the same noise, the bolt on the right front motor mount was gone. thats what was making the noise on my car.
