Question Smell in reverse

I've done several searches and have come up empty. If there is already a thread on this, I appologize and would appreciate some direction.

My FXT is my first Subaru, and it is awesome, for the most part. My issue is I have been noticing an awful smell when I am backing up, expecially up hill. It comes in through the ventilation system. I originally thought that it was the cat, it kind of has that odor, but I've noticed that it only seems to happen in reverse. This is unfortunately leading me to wonder about clutch. I unfortunately bought my FXT with a little over 900 miles on it (but the dealership guaranteed me that it had been driven under their watchful eye only ). I did however get an awesome deal, so I was able to reconcile that someone else put the first miles on it.

Well, this is getting long and off point, and probably pretty unclear. Has anyone else noticed anything like this?
