The throwout bearing is what you are pushing when you press the clutch, it disengages it (parts 12&33 in the picture).

It is highly unlikely that this can have anything to do with the smell. When in idle the clutch should be engaged, if it wre to slip with no load then it would slip terribly once you start driving.

Possibly you have caught some clutch dust from previous slippages. If that is the case it should go away after some time, otherwise your dealer could probably blow it out.
