How do you know this has anything at all to do with the clutch? Does the
noise change when you depress the clutch pedal?

There are a number of things that can make unpleasant noises at idle, but
you wont hear them while driving, like a rattling/noisy dizzy, water pump,
bad alternator bearings, etc. However any one of those would likely change
pitch with engine revs (as would a noisy throwout bearing). Are you
perhaps hearing a noisy fuel pump? Where is the noise coming from?
