2013 Evo X GSR, just under 57k miles, stock clutch

Yesterday I noticed a strange chatter/rattle type of noise when starting in 1st gear, a noise I've never heard before since owning this car from day 1. It's coming from the front of the car, and only happens when I'm coming off the clutch at the very low speed/threshold that starting in 1st entails. I have no noises when the car is actually moving in any gear and no noises when shifting, and no noise when the car is idling or in first gear not moving. I'm thinking it has to be drivetrain related. Clutch seems strong still, no slipping at all. Any ideas?

Also, I'm pretty sure I heard it make the noise in reverse, same scenario as when starting in 1st.

There's no jerking or stuttering at all. The car is driving normally but making the noise

Does the noise exist in idle? Clutch in? Clutch out?
If it only happens engaging 1st/Reverse it could be a variety of clutch problems. Loose spring, warped pressure plate, etc.

You can probably drive it but to fix the noise it's time to order up a clutch/
