100K's about the max lifespan of a clutch, with conservative driving habits. you'll likely need a full clutch job (clutch, pressure-plate, TOB, pilot bearing, machine/replace flywheel, check input shaft/pivot/fork, perhaps replace cable / quadrant).

The noise you hear (when pushing the clutch pedal in) is probably the TOB (throwout bearing). The transmission has to be removed to replace it, so at 100K you may as well have the rest done while it's out.
