Your dual mass flywheel could be failing or bad throw out bearing or both.

Are you sure it's your clutch? The heat shield on the cat has been known to rattle and fall of. Mine did exactly that.

Well that's about where the cat shield is. Better get it up and take a look underneath and jiggle a few things.
