sounds to me the friction plate has just about had it,

best way to tell is put the handbrake on quite tight, now try and pull away,if the engine dies straight away then your clutch is good,if not and it wants to run still,then you need a new one

DO NOT try this more than once,as it can put excessive wear on the clutch and is a means of finding a fault
