You might have a need to adjust the clutch pedal. If you continue to drive it like you are you'll be doing a clutch job. Contact me at for directions in adjusting clutch pedal.
If nvt2 smells something burning then it's past any adjustment. He will start smelling something soon if he doesn't adjust the pedal.
If you have the vehicle in gear can you let the clutch off does it move when at idle? If not i would suspect clutch issue.
