Default Is this a bad thrust bearing?

I picked up a 2006 416CDI 4x4 in Europe and am driving it 3000km home. Everything seems to be running well and all is smooth while driving on the highway. No heat problems etc. However, when the van is sitting at idle I can hear a noise underneath that sounds like something rotating and has a sound like a galloping horse (if I can use that comparison?). It doesn't sound like it's destroying anything, but does sound like it's probably not ideal. As soon as I push the clutch in, the sound disappears. When I take my foot back off the clutch, the sound reappears again. I don't really have any mechanical experience but over the phone my old man told me it could be a thrust bearing?

Any ideas guys? Sounds expensive? I've done 1500km and am halfway home
