Default Scion xA- New Clutch Grinds when Reverse..

My car: 2005 Scion xA

So I just had my clutch replaced 2 days ago. now when I shift into reverse its grinds where it didn't before before from this new clutch job. From research online i have tried shifting into first and then and then reverse which makes it not grind,
due to something about synchro yadaya I'm not a mechanic. From forums I'm gathering something about clutch hydraulics. I really just want to sell this car and drive my BMW out to Utah soon. But do I need to fix this or can I just tell someone
to shift into first then reverse.

Is this normal? How hard is this to fix? I'm semi handy.

Hopefully this is an okay place to post this questions, Thanks!

Is the clutch dragging?
Does it have the same engagement point as before?
Is the clutch pedal spongy?

Sounds like there is a little drag but as long as you can put it in any other gear before reverse it should be just fine and as you wear the clutch in a little it should grind less, push the clutch all the way to the floor too!
