I'd say your ears are deceiving you and it's actually your throwout bearing.

It's your bushing in the actual pedal. It's been doing the same thing to me for the past month.

If it sounds like this.

That's the sound of a release bearing after it threw out all it's ball bearings and is spinning on the tranny's input shaft.
