Pressure goes up to 50-52 then immediately "clicks" off and down to 18-20 then immediately "clicks" on back up to 50-52..constant "click" on/off and pressure up and down. Have not added any 134a yet in case it's a switch and not a low charge. What's up?

I was driving and the clutch and car were working fine, I came to a stop sign and put the car in nuetral before shifting back into first to take off and the shifter did not want to go into gear. Finally it went in and I turned the corner and it popped out of gear. I pulled over and now it will start and go into all gears but when I let out on the clutch, nothing happens it is like it is still in nuetral. I checked the cable to the slave cylinder and it is moving the fork fine, I am not sure if the clutch is bad or what, the person I bought it from said the clutch is less than a year old. Only thing i can think of is that maybe the throwout bearing is stuck and the plates cannot return pressure to the flywheel. Help!!
