Default Hearing a squealing noise from my 2011 WRX when I lug the engine...

Hey I'm wondering if anyone knows what this is. I recently had my clutch and throw out bearing replaced under warranty on my 2011 WRX. It's been about 3 months and I've started to notice that in the morning when I start up my car and engage reverse I hear this slight squealing noise coming from my engine bay. I thought it was maybe a loose belt or something but then I noticed that I found I could replicate the noise when I slipped the clutch from a standstill in 2nd gear.

I'll try to take a video of this but could my throw out bearing be going bad again? The first time it was going bad I was hearing a squeak everytime I pressed in the clutch pedal.

I' ve had the same problem with my 2012...My throw out bearing went and under warranty, the dealership installed a new clutch kit. Now I get a squealing noise when boosting, apparently its a common issue coming from a hose that leads from the throttle body to the inter cooler. Your problem on the other hand could still be the throw out bearing on the cold start. Thats what mine did. This being my first Suby, I'm starting to loose interest with all these problems.
