The only way to regrease the throwout bearing is to remove it and repack it. If you are going to get that far into it, you'd be crazy not to replace it completely. I personally believe the same applies with the clutch as well.

Mine does this too, just when it's warm. It's a minor annoyance and I don't think it will blow up or anything...

If its noisy, replacement is the only way to go, odds are clutch wont be far behind

Just replace it. It will prolly last a while, but will annoy the heck out of you.
