squeal with clutch disengaged?

Hi all, for about 3 or 4 months now I have been hearing a high pitch squeal, or whining noise when I let the clutch out on my 2012 6 speed. As soon as I start putting light pressure on my clutch it goes away (even if its not all the way in). Has anybody else ever heard this noise/know what it could be? Its pretty annoying with the windows down at slow speeds. I plan on taking it to the dealer to have it looked at when I get home (in about 2 weeks), but wanted to see if anyone else has ever heard this noise or had ideas of what it could be. My only thought is throw out bearing, but I'm no mechanic.

Thanks

Idk if you're referring to a chirp you can sometimes get from the clutch while shifting? It's really just a chirp tho with no duration to the sound. Yours sounds more prolonged correct? Maybe it's the throw out bearing?

That is correct. It is a constant sound when my clutch is out, that was my thought as well just because as soon as I start pushing the clutch back in it goes away. Thanks for the input.
