It's possible that the clutch just needs to be adjusted, you clutch pedal should have an inch or two of free play, that is, it should not disengage for the first inch or two the clutch the pedal is depressed. If free play is insufficient, adjusting the clutch will fix it -- as long as you haven't driven it like it is for too long.
Clutch problems tend to snowball quickly because slippage causes excess heat, and excess heat causes premature failure. Failure in turn results in worse slippage, it's a vicious cycle. A slipping clutch will cause the clutch disk to glaze before you know it. Once glazed it will likely continue to slip even after proper adjustment.
If there already is sufficient free play, your clutch wear parts are just worn out, the friction material of the disk is worn down and/or glazed and/or the pressure plate's spring steel has fatigued. For any of those problems the remedy is the same: new clutch. Always replace the pressure plate, disk and throw-out bearing at the same time, if one has failed the others are on the verge of failure.
