Clicking sound in my shoulder

When I'm doing low to high cable fly for chest, my right shoulder makes a clicking sound, however there is no pain. Only when I do these it makes the sound, once I raise my arms. What could this mean? Does it even mean anything? Should I stop doing these?

left triceps is bigger than my right triceps, I'm right handed

Why is that? I hit both with the same intensity, still mt left triceps is way bigger. Should I just keep doing what I'm doing and eventually they will get similar or should I start to hit my right triceps a bit more?
