Because we don't know what you are driving maybe some GENERAL answers might apply.

When you depress the clutch pedal whether mechanical or hydraulic it presses the release bearing against the clutch pressure plate and causes the plate to move away from the disc and flywheel thereby disengaging the trans from the engine.. Couldn't get site to work, but any sounds other than normal would most likely be caused by a dry/worn clutch release (throw out) bearing. Replacement is the usual fix.

Some folks have the habit of resting their left foot on the clutch pedal and this causes the bearing to contact the pressure plate fingers enough to make the bearing work while doing nothing and causes unnecessary wear. If a clutch is not kept adjusted properly ,when there is no free ply, that holds the bearing against the fingers also.

This mean I need to replace release bearing or pilot bearing or both? Are they all part of transmission? At least I want info before go to my local service repair.
Thanks

A lot will depend on how many miles are on your vehicle's clutch system. It doesn't make much sense to replace a release bearing today only to have to open everything up again maybe 3,000 miles later to replace the clutch assy.

If we go in there we replace the pressure plate, clutch disc,pilot bearing,release bearing and slave cyl if it applies .. Do it all and do it once, it is cheaper in the long run.

If on inspection everything appears good with plenty of life left on it ,then only the bad part.

The car is more than 200K miles.
Can that sound reference with the broken bearing?

Did somebody hear the same sound when clutch is pressed only?

There could be another reason for that noise, but a mechanic would have to look at the crankshaft movement before going on a wild goose chase.
This problem requires that some visual checks be done before jumping to any conclusion.
