Strange Clutch Squeak

So a few weeks ago i noticed that when i pushed in the clutch pedal there was a squeak. Only when the clutch pedal was pushed in. No noise while driving or anything like that. I didnt think much about it and it went away. Now today while driving the squeak returned only this time the pedal travel isnt smooth. It feels almost gritty and it feels a bit tougher to depress than before. The squeak doesnt sound like it is coming from inside the car, it sounds more like its coming from underneath, but i have no clue as to where. Any help would be much appreciated. I do have a spec stage 2 clutch, a stack racing clutch quadrant, and a FRPP clutch fork as well.

I'm only taking a guess here but mine has a similar problem it may be the Throw out bearing. And to replace that you might as well replace clutch and pressure plate.

What they said ^ do you know what brand throw-out bearing it is? Most people have issues when they run aftermarket throw-out bearings.
