You have too much fluid in the transmission. Park on level ground. After a 15 min drive. Leave engine running. Set parking brake. Transmssion in neutral. Check tranny fluid. A cup or more over will cause this. Better to have less than too much. Drain at least a full 1 leter bottle. Go for drive check it again. As above.

you have a stucked brakes, possible cause is clogged flexible brake hose, to find, compare temp of each wheel after running, the stucked brake would be hottest. check and replace, sometimes the bracket that holds the hose become rusted and compresses the hose, if so just remove rust on the bracket and problem solved. if not, replace hose.

Assuming your park brake is off, yes, the brakes might be locked up, and you were smelling burning clutch.
