manual transmission rattle at idle

So my 2012 JK just started rattling when sitting idle in neutral. If I push the clutch in, the rattle goes away, and if I move the shifter a little bit up or down without pushing in the clutch the rattle goes away as well. Any idea what's going on?

Did you check the oil level? Maybe a loose mount?

I haven't checked the oil level yet, but it is getting inspected on monday, so I'll probably have them look at it then, along with the squeaky seat from hell!
