Weird clutch noise! not throwout!

I was having throwout issues for a few months and after like 5 trips to the dealer they finally just replaced my whole clutch! #winning

Everything was GREAT until....

I was sitting at a stop light and had my jeep in 1st gear with the clutch depressed. I then went to reach into the back seat to grab something ( should have put it in neutral ?) and my foot came off the clutch and I stalled pretty bad. Ever since that happened I've noticed a squeaky sound coming from the clutch as I'm depressing it. You can really only hear it while the jeep is off.

I found this video with a similar sound:

It's not quite as loud as that noise though.

Any ideas as to what it may be?

I have a 2012 and mine's been doing that for a long time (two years maybe?). I haven't had any issue with the clutch other than the sound, which to me just sounds like a rusty spring being depressed. I've heard that you can remove the slave cylinder and add a bit of lubricant to it and the sound will go away, but if it's just a noise and not something mechanically failing I'm not too worried about it.
