Whatever the brand - under warranty or no warranty - _please_ don’t ride a creaking fork. Again, regardless of the brand, that’s most likely your steerer tube interface creaking. If it’s _really_ creaking (loudly) then there’s a solid possibility that your steerer is moving in the crown. The potential failure mode is the steerer tube turning in the crown / the crown rotating around the steerer tube unexpectedly while riding. And yes, as an adult it’s your decision. But, if you need a justification to buy a new fork or accept some downtime waiting for a warranty - pretty much any amount of impact-related dental work costs more than any fork on the market AND the potential to f*** yourself up if your wheel moves separately from your controls is epic.
