Smile Gargling sound when in low rev

Hi there.

I'm not sure if a lot of You are driving a Diesel/Auto, but I keep experiencing a gargling noise from "below" when in low rev, especially when it`s cold.
It needs revs to make it go away. It`s worst when accelerating from a stop and the second gear has just kicked in. Bad is also stepping on the brake when in Drive. Kind of like a grinding.
I was wondering if the stationary throttle is too low or maybe it is inherent to the engine because it maybe doesn`t develop enough torque without the Turbo around just below 1500revs. Otherwise it runs great and I don`t recall this noise from during the summer.
I bought it new, it`s a 2015 JK.

Happy New Year`s Eve.
