Question Clutch question......

So I'm about 3 weeks into having my beautiful 1999 4.0 6 Wrangler sport....and 2 days ago was confident enough to take it offroading for the first time....dropped it into 4 high while doing a slow cruise and neutral, and off i went! Finish everything up, get back on the road, turn off the 4wd, start accelerating down the highway, and i get this horrible kinda whirring mechanical sound coming from the jeep, thought it was the 4wd stuck so i did the steps to turn it on and bueno, The noise did go away, and now it only happens when i get past 2,000 rpms in any toubleshoot, i put it into neutral and gently gunned it up, past the 2,000 mark; and the sound did not re-occur....So is this a clutch going bad? I will say this is my first manual, and there was a learning curve...missshifts, stalls, and one time i didnt have the clutch fully depressed before i shifted....nasty sound haha......I have gotten the shifting down now though ......anyways, so whats a bad clutch sound like? Could this signify any other problems?

Sounds like it could be the transmission input shaft bearing if the sound goes away when you push in the clutch pedal (clutch disengaging).
