Sounds like a throw out bearing... If you replace it, you might as well change the clutch while you´re in there.

I´ve been driving my Mustang for the last few years (25,000 km) with a whining/grinding throw out bearing and it still moves. Just be very careful, no hard shifts, and be gentle.

Sounds like the bearing though.
