I had press down the door and close it from outside. I could not find any cracks or any bent hinges on the door. I am also not sure what caused the sound as well.

I took to BMW service and they said they can’t fix this and asked me to go body shop. A local body works guy looked at it and bent the door down towards the vehicle to align the doors which actually fixed the issue.

Can anyone help me if there is going to be any issues that would arise in future due to this? Like the door can pop out n a drive, etc..

Should I take it to a different body shop to open the door and check if everything is ok? Any suggestions are welcome. I drive 2019 BMW X1
I had the same thing happen many years ago (in 1973 if I remember) on a UK Hillman Avenger. I took it to a local garage and they did exactly the same. It never gave a problem for the next 4 years after which I sold it.
What I am saying is I think it will be fine. Having said that if you are not happy, get another opinion.
