It's not uncommon for a clutch to go out at 46k...depending on how the car was driven. I have had clutches last 150k driving lightly and had m3 clutches burn in 25k because I was a knucklehead.

Clutch, resurfacing of pressure plate and labor should be covered by maintenance plan assuming two things...

1) If DCT and launch control wasn't used more than 3 or 4 times since new (I forgot which but they do look it up)
2) pressure plate doesn't show excessive wear. If its blue you'll be blue..,.
