2002 impreza wrx

Default 02 wrx "randomly" stalling when coming to stop

this issue started a few months back, the car is a stock 02 wrx wagon, i have not done anything to the engine, most that i have ever done (myself) to the car is change the oil/filter, ect...

when coming to a stop i let in the clutch and apply breaks, before coming to a complete stop the idle will drop to 0.
first time was maybe 3 months ago, second was maybe last month, but in the last 2 weeks it hss done this 4 times maybe, today i was driving for less than 45 min and it stalled twice.
i was sitting at a drive through for several minutes and it was fine, got my food drove off, at the very first stop i came to i did the same thing, pushed in clutch and applied breaks then it stalled out.
i tried to restart it again before coming to a full stop by pushing the clutch in all they way and turned the key, and then i heard the starter making a very unpleasant grinding noise.... so i came to a full stop, and shut the car off completely (no one was behind me), then turned the key and the car started right up.

any ideas what this could be? i am becoming worried because it seems to be getting progressively worse

also when the car stalled i do remember seeing the check engine light come on, but once the car started up again the light was gone.
i just used my code reader and it said 0 codes :/
