2006 Yamaha R6 Clutch question?

I just bought a R6 four days ago, now when I test rode it I did not notice this and this does not happen everytime. When I am at a complete stop (usually once I have just started the bike) and release the clutch once I enter the friction zone and begin to roll forward and release the clutch faster it sounds as if there is a light grinding/shifting. What I mean by that is the bike sounds as if the chain is shifting to the correct sprocket/ shifting but very lightly. The sound, sounds as if it originates from under me to somewhere in the front of the bike.This is usually happening about 3/4 to almost fully disengaged im pretty sure its not normal anyone had this happen? If so do you know a solution?

So I attempted to get it on video. After trying to get it about 10-12 times I couldn't replicate the sound.. I'm not sure if its actually an issue but I had ten perfect clutch releases without any sounds
