Loud grinding noise

So, I woke up this morning and turn on my bimmer. Let it warm up for a second and slapped it in reverse. Still good at this point, as soon as I let ou the clutch and began moving i heard this horrible high-pitch loud grinding sound...it only happens when i move but doesn't seem to be linked to acceleration.

Thoughts?

Could be the throw out bearing or in may even be a drive shaft...hard to say when I cant hear it, but from what youve said I would say bearing...
