Weird "shhhhhhh" tranny noise

Hey everyone! So I have a couple odd noises that occur on a cold start. The one I'm posting about here is an odd one. When I first start my Jeep after its been sitting for a while, I hear this weird shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh sound coming from the tranny (I can hear the noise coming through the shifter boot). It almost sounds like TV/radio static. It's not very loud (but it's noticeable from the cabin) and it goes away after I drive 30-50 yards. Any thoughts? I can live with it as it doesn't seem to effect anything, but just wanted to make sure it doesn't sound like something more serious.

If that sound goes away when you step down on the clutch pedal, you're hearing the normal sound of the transmission's input shaft and bearings being spun by the engine. The transmission is a truck transmission & inherently noisy, not to mention there really isn't any soundproofing between the transmission & interior aside from a thin piece of carpeting.

It seems to make the sound regardless of whether the clutch is pressed down.
