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?
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 recommend making an appointment so your dealership can diagnose your vehicle. They'll be in the best position to inspect your vehicle. Keep us posted on how the appointment goes.
