clutch question...

K i own a 2012 se 5mt , so ive noticed just this last week that when i release the clutch my car makes what i'd describe as a squiggle sound... Idk how better to describe it. im wondering is this normal? Or should i possibly go get my car checked out, it has never made this sound, and it also makes it shifting between gears from 1.st through 4.th.
Thank you in advance.

On take off, are you using the no gas method?

I'll have to put something together this week for you to better show you. It makes the sound on the release of the clutch pedal when the plates are coming together. The sound is there neutral_1 1_2 2_3. It's not a rattle but a small high pitch vibration that squiggles.

Can you feel anything abnormal through the clutch pedal itself or the shifter knob? Or is just just an audible noise?

Depends. I'm normally taking my time, so I do it frequently. It's a correct way to take off.
