Question Clutch/gear grinding noise at idle?

Ok, so I have an 07 STi. This is the first STi i've owned and my previous car was an 06 wrx.

I've been noticing that when I start the car when its cold, the systems choke it on so it keeps the RPM's at like 1500-1800 or so.. When standing outside or sitting inside of the car, you can hear a faint grinding coming from the tranny. When you push the cluch in, the grinding goes away. It has something to do with the clutch but I can't figure it out. Is this normal?

After the car idles down you can't notice it but if you press the gas pedal and hold the RPM's at 2k with your foot off the clutch (in neutral) you can hear the grinding again.. where is this coming from and what is it doing?
