Last year when I was doing oil change I forgot to refill the engine oil after draining and and I accidentally started the car and the engine was running without oil for about 10 seconds. Maybe my piston rings and vales are worn out from this mishap and that is why the engine is making tick noise? But I always hear this ticking noise before the mishap.

No way in hell you did any damage with just 10 second wet fire..
The small film of oil sticks to the walls of the engine and bearings so in those 10 seconds the engine still had protection.. Its when you peel off that film after a long run that will start to cause damage, Maybe after a minute or 2.

If the engine was rebuild and it was bone dry then yes even a 10 second fire up will cause some scoring.
