Default Very odd hooting/howling noise in first gear only from stop to clutch release

Anyone have any idea what this sound is? Happens at stop signs every so often when I go from a complete stop to a start, and only happens until the clutch is let out, so like 1mph-5mph. It doesn't happen when I press in the clutch pedal, only when releasing it, and only happens in first gear. It doesn't happen all the time, but if I am on an incline it is almost guaranteed to make the noise. I don't feel any problems with engagement, nor disengagement, and have never modded or raced the car. It is a 2016, but here is a video of the same exact sound.

There is one more video of the sound, but you can barely hear it at the second stopto start in this one.

I hear ticking. Not howling or hooting.

Can't hear it in the video but from what you described it sounds like a Throw out bearing like what simpleJ said.

I'm actually taking mine to Subaru today to get looked at.

Edit: Actually Carmax; being i have MaxCare and the TOB most likely would be covered.

It's most likely the throw out bearing. They can make a variety of strange sounds.

The first video sounds like there's a car with their turn signal on..

Throw out bearing, gets worse when wet or cold.

Wtf would you talk during a video if you're trying to record a noise?

Can't watch video at work, but based upon clutch release, on a hill, and only in first, I would suspect hill hold may be causing an issue. May be a little sound from the brakes dragging before they fully let off.

Edit: easy to test this as well as you can easily turn off hill hold

In the first video you hear the noise quickly right in between 2 and 3 seconds in.
