Noise from MT

Yesturday, while i was waiting my garage gates open, i turned the music off, and for the first time heard some strange low mechanical noise comming from MT. It took me a bit of time to recognize and understand what was it. I placed my ear on/near the shift knob, certanly it have become more clear. The noise apears only when MT is engaged somehow (in neutral gear with clutch engaged, when driving slowly in first gear), its like the noise of rotating shafts or gears. I understand that some noise must be, but sould it be heard by me in total silence (music off, clima off)? In my previous car (Impreza STI) there was no such noise, maybe i havent heard it because there are a lot off other noises, i dont know. In other cars as well.
I also tried to rev, the noise increased only a little. So is it normal, will it disappear after i will have my 2000km/1200m maintanence done or i will have problems with it?

For now i did only about 1200km, but in 100% order with running in recomendations.

Thank you for your answers in advance)
