I recently just replaced my clutch and the same thing happened to me! Supposedly it's somewhat normal. Do you have a stock or aftermarket quadrant? If you have the stock one you can try adjusting it. I did it on mine and it took most of it away. Just be sure to not adjust it too tight, you still want se play. As far as your noise goes did you torque your clutch and flywheel to specs? Maybe get underneath and make sure everything's tight and there's nothing obvious undone. Hope this helps!
