HELP! Squeaky clutch / problems shifting

I notice my Jeep was making a slight squeaky noise when the clutch pedal is pushed all the way in, but has been driving fine the past few weeks. Last night the noise got louder, so I took a video of it. My Jeep has about 75,000 miles, and still the original clutch.

This morning, it had some problems shifting between gears. About 1/2 the time, it wouldn't go into ANY gear. No grinding, it just wouldn't go into gear until I turned the engine off, put it into gear, and started the engine again. The shifting problem seemed to be random, and while up or down shifting in any gear.

The searching I have done suggests that the clutch release bearing is the problem. Can anybody confirm this?

And....What should I expect to pay for repair?

Thanks in advance for any help!
