There is a bearing that presses on the center of the clutch release arms when you put your foot down, it's called the clutch release bearing. It sounds like yours is starting to go bad. There is also a bushing or bearing in the back of the crankshaft that can cause this noise. the the input shaft of the transmission is stabilized in this. These two items are almost always replaced when a clutch job is performed. Unfortunately that is the only way to get at these two bearings. You may be able to drive the vehicle for quite a few more miles. but this is a sign of things to come.

Almost sounds like a throwout bearing problem. Either way, bring the car back and make them fix it. It will be covered under the warranty so dont let them try to convince you otherwise.

A clutch pedal not springing back is almost always an indication that there is air in the system. Bleeding out a clutch is a tedious endeavor to say the least.
I suggest you open up the bleeder screw & gravity bleed the clutch.(This will take a long time as well!)
