The problem can be several things including the clutch cable, throw out bearing, or just a lack of lubrication.
I would start by checking the clutch cable. I attached a diagram along with the adjustment procedure for your reference.
Remove the cable from the clutch form and with someone inside the car and someone at the transmission end of the cable gently push down on the clutch pedal by hand. While this is being done the person holding the cable should feel for any binding or listen for any squeaking. If it is binding or noisy I recommend replacement rather than lubricating it as most likely the cable is already damaged and it is not worth getting stuck for an inexpensive part. If you do want to try and lubricate it you can get good cable lube at any motorcycle shop.
If the cable appears good gently move the clutch form back and forth to feel for any binding or to see if you hear your noise. If you do it will require removal of the transmission for further diagnosis.
When you reinstall the cable follow the adjustment procedure I attached to this string.
