Default Squeaky clutch

Hey guys, Just enjoying my ranger, just passed a 1000KMs the other day but one thing that bothers me is that everytime I press on the clutch pedal, the pedal squeaks and its only when the truck is rolling. It doesn't do it if the truck is stationary. I don't feel any resistance in the pedal it just squeaks, is this normal because is being broken or is this a warranty issue I have to bring to the dealer?

I had the very same thing happen to a chevy I owned. The shit squeaked EVERY time I pushed it in. I could hear it was a squeak coming from the action of the clutch when I pressed it in. Like Terry said Lithium grease it. Even though it has low miles it could be just something common like lack of grease that makes it squeak. If its not the point on the interior pedal action and if its outside then I really couldnt help ya there man
