Default squeaking noise when clutch pedal is fully released

So like the title says, my 2012 wrx is making a squeaking sound when at idle. I'm sure its either a throwout bearing or a rubbing/rattling fork, but wanted to make this thread to help out someone else down the road...

Here's what I know so far

About twice a week, usually after spirited, but not hard driving, I can feel a slight vibration while depressing the clutch pedal. I don't know if this is related to the sound I hear or not...

There is a squeaking noise that isn't terribly loud, but definitely audible with windows up. This noise was first noticed at 9000 miles. As soon as I could, I dropped the car off at the dealer, they couldn't replicate the noise and therefore didn't do anything...

Between then (jan 2013) and now (april 2013) I've noticed the squeaking three other times. Almost always it goes away after the car sits overnight.
Now at 13,400 miles, it started squeaking again, so I took some video with my phone for proof for my stealership...

Sure sign is when you lightly touch the pedal and it stops.. I bet you could do the same with your fingers right at the clutch fork..

Weather itll go bad or not is hard to say.. ive got one BNIB from Exedy that does it but only sometimes

It is the throw out bearing. My dealer replaced it under warranty but the sound came back after 5000 miles. I just ignore it now. It goes away after a couple miles of warming up.
