'08 GT gearbox noise.

Hopefully someone out there can help me on this. I have a 2008 GT with manual transmission, when I sit at 30 mph there seems to be a groaning noise, when I take my foot off the gas the noise goes likewise when I put my foot back on the gas it goes, it only happens like I said sat steady at 30 mph. I've also noticed something rubbing on the metal plate between engine and gearbox near the flywheel. I've had to put two washers in between to stop this happening. This is not ideal I know but I'm very limited to who I can take the car to here in England. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry, I put the washers between the sandwich plate that covers the flywheel in between the engine and gearbox.
The noise happens at about 30 mph so I reckon 2nd gear but at 70 mph in 5th the noise happens only if I put my foot on the gas then take it off again. Someone mentioned a pilot bearing or something. My Haynes manual is very vague.
Many thanks for your help. I haven't touched any other bolts apart from the two bottom ones. I may have to bite the bullet and take the gearbox off for a closer look, I'll also change the clutch etc.
