Isearch does not in fact use the minibuffer. It uses the echo area, which
occupies the same screen real estate.

Starting with Emacs 22, anytime you click in the echo area (not the
minibuffer), buffer *Messages* is displayed.

See the Isearch doc for how to interact with Isearch, including how to edit
a search string (which is presumably why you tried to click there).
