How many miles on it? The bearings will usually last quite a while, but that depends on factors like holding the clutch pedal in at stop lights. Maybe it wasn't greased properly at the factory.

The point where the clutch slave actuator contacts the clutch fork has to be greased with a lithium type grease. If you use a standard grease or wheel bearing grease, the creak WILL come back.
This is under the hood, below the air filter, on the drivers side. Push the actuator rod back into the clutch slave enough to allow you to clean the point of contact, them apply a small dab on lithium grease. Less than a 5 minutes job after you find where the clutch slave/release fork is.
Then slowly push in the clutch pedal repeatedly about 1/3 of it's travel until it fills the slave and pushes the rod out to contact the release fork again. At this point you will feel pressure once again at the pedal. I caution against 'flooring' the clutch pedal as the seals may get damaged.
