So I've been playing bass for a while now and I'm thinking along the rode I picked up some bad habits. Every once in a while I'm noticing a "clicking" sound coming from my amp.

I'm wondering if this is a technique problem or an amp problem or what, and whatever it is how do I fix it? No matter how I change my technique it doesn't seem to change!

Is it the sound of your fingernails hitting the strings? (When I play fingerstyle, this sometimes happens.) Try cutting your nails down and using more flesh...

^^^ I'm talking about playing bass guitar...I'm guessing you mean 6-string. Bass players use the bottom of their fingers to play guitar so fingernails wouldn't be an issue.

Well that sound could still be your fingernails hitting the string after the pad of your finger. That's what happened with me.

Wouldn't the finger tip be the bottom of the finger? Using finger tips is not a bad thing.
