I assume it has a stick shift as you put clutch in the question, you have described a classic slipping clutch symptom, look underneath and see if you hav an inspection cover or plug in the bell housing, shield you eyes and remove the cover, becareful not to breath in any of the dust if any falls out, if the area covered in clutch dust or you find pieces of clutch lining laying in there then it is verifiable that your clutch is almost totally gone. Won't last long, better get it to where your going to do the work while it still moves.
