Megane help! vibrating/rumbling on pulling away

Hi, car is megane coupe 1.6e 1998 model, ive developed a problems somehwere in the front!

on pulling away i hear a quick vibrating/rumbling/knocking sound coming somewhere from the front right of the car. This only happens on pulling away AND only happens when i pull away at high revs, if i just stroll away the car is smooth as anything. The noise all varies on loudness and duration depending on the rev count as well.

Also whilst i am here thought i might throw this out there, when slowing down and downshifting ive noticed gears 2 and 1 can be very hard to get into at times, depending on how much ive slowed the car down, Some one told me this is common on renaults? I'm just asking to put my mind at ease as ive come from a old style clio 4 gear gearbox that performed alot differently to this newer 5 speed box i have now and was wandering weather its just i should get used to it or maybe there is a problem lurking in the back ground? Its due a service which i will be doing when i have the money, maybe lack of fluid some where?

sorry i'm just no good which things like this and help is always appreciated!
