I have a 2012 STI and just under 800 miles odm. I have this exact issue.

Not having any clutch issues.

But when accelerating through 1-2-3 gear at about 2-3k rpms. That is when i hear what seems to sound like metal rubbing on metal. I don't call it grinding cause its subtle. It almost sounds like there is no lubrication in the transmission. Thats the best way to describe it. I am going to bring it to the dealer tomorrow.

Please anyone with more info on this please PM me. I think this is a real issue. This would actually make a great thread of its own. Seeing as its not clutch related.
