Has anyone come across a grinding sound when starting the car's engine?
During ignition? I hear it sometimes, in the morning, but only once..
Can it be a battery issue?

Grinding during ignition is usually symptomatic of a starter motor issue.

But its not all the time, only once per day or every other day...
I thought maybe the battery was not strong...
Is this something serious? Should be covered under warranty

Metal-to-metal contact points can do funny things when it has time to sit overnight and expand, contract, etc.
I would record a video of your starting each time you start the truck until the noise presents itself. Save it. Send it to your service adviser and schedule a time to leave the XC overnight with their techs to duplicate the same the following morning.

And yes, it should be covered under warranty.

You'll normally hear clicking on weak battery, or really sluggish starts, not grinding. Take it to the dealership, they can diagnose it quickly and tell you if it's covered under warranty.
