Clutch prob need tsb?

Well I noticed it a couple nights ago when I was driving it harder than normal. As I pulled it out on a launch right after it went into gear I could hear a UMMMP, kind of high pitched. I pulled over checked around the car to make sure there was nothing weird. Everything seemed fine. I began to drive home carefully and even on soft launches it would make that noise. Now here is the weird part. It has only made that sound 3-4 times since then I've been driving a lot too. I took it to the dealer today and gave them a ride around and of course it didnt make the sound. I requested that they do the TSB along with some other little items, but they said it may need the TSB they need to look into it more, but I'm just wondering what it could be because they didnt have a straight answer for me. Thanks.

A ship's horn?
The rattle sound for the clutch TSB is more commonly described as "marbles in a can".
Hmmm.
