Initial thoughts sounds like a clutch issue. You could have a leak in the hydraulic system - a slave or clutch master cylinder issue. Or the clutch disc could be worn out. Check the fluid under the hood at the clutch master cylinder - if low, fill it with DOT3 brake fluid. This could be a sign of a hydraulic leak. Good luck.
