Mine's done it's whole life. Maybe your just now noticing it? I do know some are very loud with no apparent problems and others are super quiet. Mine was real loud but went away when the clutch was changed and now it only does sometimes. It's kind of weird how at times it's loud and other times I don't hear it at all or I'm not listening for it. I dunno it's just weird. If the clutch functions fine then I would worry about it unless it's super loud. Then you probably would want to go get it checked out by the shop that put it in. SVT's are notorious for making this noise. Not that that has anything to do with it, just wanted to throw that out there. It's has something to do with the throw out bearing/slave cylinder and the pressure plate. I guess sometimes there is a little bit of play in them?
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
