Slight squeak When In Third Gear

Hey guys,

I've had my car for about three months now and bought it from a private dealership. I meant to have it looked at shortly after I bought it, but the only issue I could find with it when I test drove it was a slight squeaking when I'd hit third gear. It's a manual transmission and the squeak stays until I either shift up, or ride in third gear for more than a few seconds. I've been meaning to get it looked at, but haven't gotten around to it yet. The squeak seems to be a lot less quiet or completely non-existent after the engine has warmed up. It's a 2002 ford focus and has 201,000 miles on it.

I was hoping that someone here could help me out and tell me ideas that it could be, and how hard it would be to check on my own. Thanks for anyone's input!

In any manual that I've driven, none of them have been able to take off in third gear, including my car that I drive now. :l
