Could be the throw out bearing, does it stop when you just start to press in the clutch? If so then that is the most likely problem.

Yes it stops when you press in the clutch. However, when I am riding both 1st and 2nd gear it makes that noise. All other gears are fine. Hoping it is not the transmission but not high on it.....I assume the clutch and tranny have different functions. However, do you have an estimate cost of fixing the throw out bearing? Thanks

Going on what you just stated I'm afraid that it is the tranny.
