Hello Dear customer, did not the Hyundai perform maintenance to the throttle body?.
This symptom with the 2000 rpms when you press the clutch is a clear signal of a problem with the throttle body which may be or dirt or clogged.
In addition have the clutch system been checked looking if it merit replace? ( Although this is unlikely because according to the year of your Santa Fe, it should have a low mileage)
