A bad throw out bearing will make noise when the pedal is being depressed, or it's all the way depressed. The reason for this is because the bearing has to push the release fingers of the pressure plate before it's being used. If there's noise before the pedal is being pushed, could be a bad pilot bearing. Need more details.

well, if you were interested in just replacing the clutch while you're in there doing the throwout bearing, then it would cost you about $300 to do it yourself.
