1999 saturn sl1 revs engine when clutch pressed in

Whlie Im driving my RPMs rev up to 3,000 when I press in my clutch instead of lowering RPMs

Should we all assume that you do actually release the gas pedal when you push in the clutch? If not, then your car is behaving pretty normally.

If so then I could start by cleaning the throttle body and checking the throttle linkage & mechanism.
