I know this subject has been beaten to death, but I've searched for it and read a lot about it but am not sure if it is the problem I am having.

I've noticed this more in 1st and 2nd gear, but when I start moving the car then switch into 2nd, when I push in the clutch I hear a chirping sound (kind of like noisy brakes) for abotu 1/2 a second then goes away.

This happens all the time now after the car has been driven for about 10-15minutes (car heats up). I can really only hear it in the 1-2 shift and 2-3 shift, it's hard for me to tell if it still occurs with the other shifts.

Is this a sign of a faulty throw out bearing???

Once it heats up, you should probably hear it just holding the clutch pedal in. That would be the throwout bearing. Mine screeched extremely loud, but usually after I had gotten on the throttle a bit. Pumping the clutch pedal would clear it up temporarily. I had some other work done on the tranny under warranty and had a Valeo TOB installed when they put it back together. It's been quiet ever since.
