2006 320i engine and clutch noises

Hi guys.

I bought a 2006 320i with 113000km about a month ago...

Since I got it, it started making some curious noises.

The first one is the clutch... or I think it's the clutch. It might be the thrust bearing. It is similar to this.
The car also sometimes struggles to go into first and sometimes second...
After driving a while, the clutch also jutters when I don't give it enough gas, where when it's cold, it doesn't.

The second one is this.
The only thing is, on cold start, the car feels brand new. No noises, not from the engine or even clutch. But, when I drive it for about 5 minutes, the noises starts kicking in and gets louder up to a certain point...

I serviced the car about 500km's ago. New oil filter and oil. 15-40 if I remember correctly. So the lubrication shouldn't be the problem here.

Any ideas?
