Default 2002 Saturn SC2 Manual Transmission Roaring when cold

I have a 2002 Saturn sc2 manual that has a very concerning roaring/grinding noise coming from the transmission when itís cold (for around the first 5 miles of driving) but it clears up once itís warm and drives perfectly fine. I changed the tranny fluid about 9k miles ago thinking that would clear the issue but it still is there. I also just changed the wheel bearings and that fixed another noise at high speeds but the other noise still lingers when itís cold and accelerating through all gears. Iím stumped as to what this is because my clutch is fine, and it completely goes away once itís warmed up (but I should mention it comes back after sitting for 4+ hours). If anyone else has had this issue or heard of it please enlighten me as to what the problem is. My car old has 113k miles on it so to be sure my transmission isnít on the way out.

Also the noise doesnít show up until I let off the clutch in first gear. Forgot to mention that.
