There is noise coming from the rear in accell and decel around the 50mph mark. HOWEVER, it does it when the clutch is in also.
Is this tire noise or what?

You are describing the infamous rear end whine... MANY of us have experienced this and had it corrected. It will happen with the clutch in or out. The noise generally eases up when letting off the gas. This will not correct itself.

Go to your service dept have them verify it asap and get a replacement ordered.

I have never heard of a pinion noise when you push clutch to floor. Carrier bearings yes. Does the noise change on different pavements if so that’s tires how many miles on car? Also you can swerve hard R/L and if noise changes not pinion.
