Noisy clutch/box after CV boot change

Took drive shaft off the car to replace CV boot.

Got rained off so had to push the car back into the garage and come back to it and now when I start the car up there is a whirring noise from clutch when pedal is not depressed.

With the front wheels in the air and both front wheels are turning at some speed. Not in gear. If I depress the clutch the noise goes away.

ABS and traction light have come on whether this is related?

I haven’t touched the clutch which is what’s confusing me? Any ideas of things to look at first?

ABS light went off when I went over 15 so that’s reset itself fine.

Typically gearbox oil leaks out pretty much most of the time when you take a driveshaft out, even when jacked up on one end. You may be driving it with too little oil...
