METAL RUBBING/SCRAPING NOISE WHEN ACCELERATING

2001 Fiat Punto • 80,000 miles

Hey, I basically bought a 2001 punto Go and on the test drive everything was fine, running perfectly. Now a month later I have a noise coming from the engine, infront of where the passenger would sit. To explain it, it would sound like rubbing two flat metal disks together and only happens when accelerating in first and sometimes second gear. The noise isn't present until I take my foot of the clutch and happens mainly in higher revs?

From what i've read could this be that the engine is low on Gear Oil?

Have you checked transmission fluid/oil level?
