What kind of sounds are you getting? Also the life of the clutch depends on how you treat it. I would think that if you change your oil regulary and don't clutch the front wheel up everwhere you ride that it should last longer than 12k miles. You may have glazed the plates which happened to my SV before I had purchased it. When the motor and clutch was cold it would "Chatter" some times until it got warm. My SV only had 2k miles on it at that time and now I have close to 15k and she still rides like a champ and no problems with the clutch this far.
