I know.. problem is I just passed my 36000 mile warranty and it I'm sure this wouldn't be covered anymore and might end up them charging me a lot of $.
I had a mechanic friend looked at it and said it's most likely the clutch's release bearing. they said it wouldn't cause any harm it's just that the noise will be anoying. He suggests to wait for us to change the clutch together with it. What do you guys think?
