Default '12 impreza hissing sound

I put about 11k on my impreza so far, and it seems to have developed a few noises along the way.

1. Every time i depress the clutch, I hear something that sounds like a lot of air being pushed out of something very quickly.

2.while lightly accelerating, there is a loud hiss with a bit of a metallic sound to it. Dealer says its normal, but my car sounds like crap and it only recently started doing this. If I push the gas just a bit more, the sound goes away.

If its normal, its one thing, but the fact that these noises just recently started happening worry me a bit. The hissing only happens while in gear, so I'm thinking it might be something with the transmission if it is anything. Gas mileage has also decreased by 4mpg over the past couple months.
