Indeed, if someone asks you "Kommst du morgen?" and you answer by "Allerdings komme ich morgen", it can have at least a slight notion of threat, the implication being something like "yes indeed I will come and also there is some wrong you have done to me, which we are at least going to talk about, once I come." I will provide an example. You break something ...

"Kritik" can be used in a neutral way, meaning "critique" as in "review": Ich habe eine Filmkritik geschrieben. I read your quote with this meaning. It can also be used meaning "negative" statements (arguably, still constructive ones), i.e. "criticism": Ich kritisiere seine Vorgehensweise. Immer kritisierst du nur an mir rum! Except in ...

A "Hab" is something that you "have" in your immediate possession. It refers to things like movable objects. A Gut is a "good" that you own, that is too big to be a "possession" that can be moved. Like a house or a piece of land.

Taken at face value, "allerdings" is not a threat. But in the right (wrong) context, it could be. In English, it might be like appending a sentence with But... or However...
