I'm afraid im having either a clutch or transmission problem on 2000 Chevrolet S10

Manual transmission when shifting it's hard to get in gear and it grinds

It's not the transmission; Either the clutch master and slave cylinder or the clutch itself. Try to pump the clutch pedal several times before putting it in gear, see if it goes in easier. If it does, it's probably the hydraulics.
