Clutch noise question

Figured I better ask this here first (before I take it to the dealership):

When I start the car (2010 SE) and it's cold out (it's WI - so it IS cold), it starts and sounds fine...until the moment I let my foot off the clutch pedal (in neutral). Then this high pitch whine-y type of noise starts.

It only last for a min or two and seems to dissipate as the RPM's idle down (and car warms up). It does not make the noise when warmed up.

What is it/could it be?
Start of bad slave cylinder on clutch?
Something else?

I only have 3 months of bumper to bumper warranty left, would like it to be fixed before then IF this an issue. Maybe it is common sound on the Focus, but I do not remember my last one making this noise.

I wouldn't have to learn to manage my anger if people could learn to manage their stupidity.
