Its probably not the throwout bearing. Bearings make the most noise when loaded and when the clutch pedal is not depressed, the throwout bearing shouldn't be loaded at all. Im banking more on an input shaft bearing. Push in the clutch, noise goes away because the input shaft stops spinning.

This said, my ST also made this exact noise. Never really bothered me enough to fix anything.
