My clutch squeeks like crazy when im letting it out slowly, some times when im pushing it in aswell. It seems like it mostly does it when the engine gets warm, or if its a humid day.Its really annoying. Does anyone know what might be causing this?

A quick google search would have provided you with the answer you seek. It is a VERY common problem.

There is generally 3 spots that can cause this

1) The master cylinder shaft is squeaking as it pushes on the diaphragm inside the master cylinder it's self. A huge sign to this is you will see fluid leaking out where the shaft goes in and you might also see fluid on the carpet.
-To fix: replace the master cylinder.

2) There is a ball and socket type connection where the slave cylinder pushes the shift fork. They tend to get dry and this metal on metal connection gets very loud.
-To fix: pull back the rubber dust boot and lube the socket with lithium grease.

3) Just inside the hole that the shift fork comes out of is another ball and socket joint along with a spring to keep tension. Same thing as #2, they tend to go dry.
-To fix: same as #2 although a huge pain to get into where the connection is.
