It looks like a normal acoustic transient. You see this effect on nearly all acoustic percussive signals, especially close-mic'd.

But a suggestion - while listening to this kick track along with the other drums tracks, try inverting the polarity of this track so the transient is positive instead of negative. It can sometimes make a noticeable (and desireable) difference if percussive transients are going positive, which translates to outward speaker excursion. If it sounds better, it's better.
