Could be a failing clutch, could be a bad reverse gear (I've had both in an old VW Golf I had a long time ago).
OR, it could be that the reverse gear is a straight cut gear (forward gears are mesh or angled), meaning it is not as smooth of a connection made. If you've ever wondered why cars make a whine while reversing, this is the reason.
It also could be that your car needs a clutch linkage adjustment. If the adjustment is correct when the clutch is depressed the gears should stop turning and eliminate the grinding.

Frankly, even though this forum has a lot of very nice people, the few bad apples around here have gotten on my nerves. I simply don't care enough to log on and try and help others when all too frequently, I get mocked or made fun of.
