If the noise stops when you push in the clutch, it sounds to me that you may have a flywheel problem (may be dual mass flywheel...?), or pressure plate / throwout bearing related. Any way you look at it, the transmission will have to be accessed.
if u have a manual transmission check the release bearing f u pres ur cluch pedal u will hear whissing sound means ur release bearing has no grease n soon beak down
