If you spun a bearing you'd know because it would start making a loud rapping sound like someone knocking on your engine block with a hammer and it would get a lot louder as RPM's increase. If it's a loud ticking noise it could be in the valve train. Pull your oil dipstick out and examine the oil on the end of it closely under good light. If you see small metallic "specs" in it, odds are you've spun a bearing.
