When you have a problem with a slipping clutch, the engine will rev higher even with no pressure on the clutch pedal. I do not think it is a clutch.

How do i change the clutch?

You have to pull the transmission out to replace the clutch, not for the weekend mechanic, most front wheel drive cars you have to remove the engine along with it and separate the two outside the vehicle. I recommend taking it to a shop.

I think you might need to ask someone to throttle up the car and you look underneath to try locating the rattling noise. Don't forget that this model runs the exaust pipe in front of the motor so it might be an exaust rattle as well??
