Could be throwout bearing or even a pilot bearing, tranny will have to be removed to find out for sure.

thank you su much...

I've got a noisy throw out bearing in my 2013 model. got a feeling it's probably inherent. wouldn't worry too much about it. if it's not too bad , it will probably stay like that 4 ever.
