AY6 Not disengaging fully in cold weather

I have the AY6 Transmission (~13,000mi) and since the cold weather has arrived I noticed that it seems like the clutch engages just barely off of the floor. Up until the last few days I have just written it off as cold weather affecting the hydraulics in some way but tonight I could barely get the car into reverse in my driveway. After messing around with it a little bit I discovered that if you put the car in Neutral, pump the clutch 5 or 6 times quickly, then try and put it in gear it it goes in smooth as ever. Has anyone else had this issue? It also seems like the engagement point on the clutch has changed over time, on my motorcycle I could adjust this but I assume given the hydraulic clutch theres no adjustment for this in the Camaro?

As an aside, the camaro is my first car with a manual transmission however I have been driving motorcycles since before I could drive a car, and I can drive my friend's 5spd Jetta without any issues so I doubt theres been any operator error involved in this.

EDIT: Continuation of this problem here: It made more sense for the continuation of this issue to live under Warranty Issues.

Have your dealer look at it. Sounds like there might be air in the line. My clutch behaved like that briefly right after I had my transmission replaced. Dealer took a look at it and re-bled the line. Haven't had a problem since...
