Whinnying noise when I push in my clutch

I noticed today after I took it into towns that when I push in my clutch I get a whining noise I never heard or just noticed it before clutch is fairly new maybe a month or two old and has very little miles. Is it normal or do I need to adjust it or what

Only time I heard a whiney noise was in my buddys stang. His throw out bearing went out.
Try the self adjusting the clutch. Lift the clutch pedal and then press it down fully

Isn't that typically a sign of an issue like the clutch is going?

Do you know if it has a new flywheel or if it was resurfaced? I don't know if this could cause this issue though.

Noise when you push the clutch in is sign of a bad pilot bearing. When the clutch is engaged (pedal up), the pilot and the input spin as one, when you disengage the clutch (push pedal to floor) the input spins at a different rate than the crank and that is what the pilot bearing is for. Your TOB would be making noise all the time if it was going out as a properly adjusted TOB is always spinning.

Pilot requires the entire trans to come out as well as the clutch and flywheel. You don't have to change the clutch and TOB if they are new but if they are older you might as well while its all apart.
