Your throw out bearing going bad will make noise in all gears, with the clutch pushed in or out. If you hear a knocking noise coming from the trans you may have bigger issues. But yes it's bad to let it go. Eventually it will lock up and you will have metal on metal and slowly it will destroy your clutch release fingers on the pressure plate. Eventually one day you will push in the clutch and the throw out bearing will go straight through the pressure plate and get stuck. Then you won't have a clutch and you'll be stuck and SOL.
