A rattle or a buzz? Could be the strings, loose bridge, tuners or nut or wires if you have a pick-up. Do you have a clip-on tuner? My tuner buzzes when I play. I have to take off because it annoys the crap out of me.

Something might be loose on it? Strum it then look and listen carefully.

I had one uke that made a buzzing sound because the tuner was getting loose and had to be tightened.
