Question 2000 honda civic ex - engine noise


I bought a 2000 Honda Civic EX not too long ago and I think there might be something wrong with the engine.

First off, when I turn the engine on there is a little bit of a tick, tick, tick noise (kinda sounds like its low on oil, but I've checked the oil several times and the level is fine) - this doesn't really bother me much just thought it might be relevant somehow.
What does bother me is that the engine starts to roar pretty loud at around 2.5rpm (when I approach 3rpm it gets really loud - kinda sounds like i'm revving it up way too high, even though it's far from being in the red zone - especially in the first 3 gears, the 4th and 5th gear are much better). It's accelerating fine, but I have to change gears a lot because the rpm goes up fast (have to go into 2nd at maybe 10-15 (if I'm pushing it)mph, 3rd gear at around 25-30 (if I'm pushing it) mph, 4th gear at around 35-40mph - Is this normal for a Honda? I was driving a Jeep Wrangler before, which obviously drives completely different.)

I would really appreciate some feedback on this...
