ZF-6 clutch squeak

I've been looking around and couldn't find straight answer for why my clutch squeaks. No problems are coming from it yet other than the noise, I just don't want it to evolve into a problem. What should I do?

Does it still squeak if you barely push on the pedal. If it goes away, I'd guess the throw out bearing.

Barely at first and all the way down it gets louder.

Original or aftermarket clutch? How many miles on the assembly?

My thought would be throw out bearing also. I would try to replicate the issue while under the truck to see if you can pinpoint the source of the noise.
