Before deciding you need a new clutch you must first inspect the operation of the clutch master and slave cylinders. First make sure there is the correct amount and type of fluid in the clutch master cylinder. If the clutch master cylinder is empty then you have a leak that must be repaired. If the fluid is full then you will need to check for proper operation of the slave cylinder. If the hydraulic portion of the clutch checks out OK then chances are you will need a new clutch.
