Icon4 Clutch? Engine Problems? Need Input!

I have a 2005 Ford Ranger V6 4L SOHC and I'm having a few problems.
First, when I'm in first and I slowly take off on a hill mytruck squeels, I was curious if this happens to anyone else? Or what is it?
I also heard it's a throwout bearing but I'm not gonna replace it if I don't know...
Thanks!

Mine does it slightly when you take off and it's cold. Has done it for 50k miles now. Does yours still do it when the clutch is warmed up?

Just when it's cold, i heard the throw out bearing won't affect it that much, and I shouldnt change it till I get a new clutch or something

I wouldn't worry about it. I bought my truck with 40K on it, it now has 102K (I guess 62K it's been doing it). It does it all the time when the clutch is cold. Same clutch, no failures.
