strange noise

Now that the weather is turning cooler a problem that hasn't occurred since last winter has returned. During start up only after the focus has sat in cold temperatures a squealing noise can be heard when the the clutch is engaged. If the clutch is disengaged the squealing stops. the noise disappears after a few miles of driving. Is it the throw-out bearing ??

Yes, it's the most likely cause. The throwout bearing can last in that condition for a considerable time however; no need to panic.
