Is it a clicking noise when depressing the pedal? If so, that's the neutral safety switch. It's a safety device insuring you don't start your car in gear and K.O. whoever is unlucky enough to be standing in front of your car. Perfectly normal.

Video should work now.

You must mean A/C clutch and yes this is normal. After the clutch locks in it's the compressor pitter patter that you hear.

Okay I hear what you mean now, dried out and worn throw out bearing. The thing is if you can stand the noise those can run like that for a long time, if you ever need to change the clutch, that would be a good time to change the throw out bearing.
