Most dealers will tell you that some noise is normal, and nothing to be concerned about. However, if you have a good dealer and/or really push the issue, some dealers have been replacing the entire clutch pack under warranty to sort this problem.
Note that "excessive noise" doesn't usually count for much, but specifically complaining about clutch "judder" or "jerkiness" when first pulling away will often trigger more aggressive action by the dealer. In fact, I believe that clutch judder is actually called out in the dealer's PUMA database, which gives them authorization to do a proper fix.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
