2016 Forester 6 speed manual & love it!

I have a 2016 Forester Premium 2.5L w/a manual tranny 6speed. Recently, when I put the clutch down to change into gears, I hear a weird noise that's actually rather hard to describe, but I'm trying to figure out what it could be. It sounds a little like a truck w/air brakes when the air brakes release air, but it's kind of like that noise, but very-very quiet. I drive about 80% freeway and have 93K on the car, so I'm surprised if the clutch is wearing out because I don't use it much, it's in 6th gear most of the 93K miles.

Any ideas?
Thanks.

it might be throw out bearing, it might be internally leaking slave or master cylinder. Or it might be clutch fork. mine started with a hose leak at slave. with new hose, they couldn't bleed it,and started to get noise. teardown showed throwout bearing going, with trans out, did clutch package includes clutch,pressure plate,throwout bearing,pilot bearing. they also did slave cylinder. This about 13 months ago. 2 weeks ago, having full release problem, fluid filthy. had them do bothcylinders. 2 days later felt a pop. that was clutch fork bending.
