Well just by hearing it and from what 2 friends of mine said it sounds like it is the release bearing cause I can start the car in gear but as soon as I put my foot on the clutch thats when I get the noise

That is what I thought. The throw out bearing (release bearing) will make noise when you push the clutch in.

If you have other questions, let me know.
