Rocky noise at highway speed

Hello all, I am new to the forum. Long time Daihatsu enthusiast but new Rocky Owner. Its a 1990 1.6l 5speed 4wd. Got it running great. But it has a LOUD whining Noise which seems to be coming from the shifter area. Only happens when I'm going over 40mph. It stops if you push in the clutch or let off the gas and just coast. I am thinking its the throw out bearing in the clutch. Just looking for reassurance before I order a clutch kit and pull out the tranny. Any input would be great. If it matters I am in the US. I imagine the drivetrains is the same for the ones imported over here. Thanks in advance!
