clutch noise

Just started hearing a noise when I engage the clutch. Not consistent but will make different noises. The first noise sounded like a scraping noise, another noise it makes is a whining noise when the clutch is released, and sometimes it makes both at the same time. Is this the TOB or the pressure plate? Since I bought this Jeep first gear pops out occasionally, will changing the clutch and TOB fix both problems. Also this is my only vehicle, describing these noises how long do I have before it stops on me?

Sounds like you definitely need a clutch job. It really doesn't make a difference whether it's the throw out bearing or pressure plate as both will come in a clutch kit. How long will it last is anyone's guess; it could go out today or may last for months. I really doubt that the jumping out of first gear is a clutch issue...sounds more like first gear is not fully engaging.
