You shouldn't have to disassemble everything in order to get to the trap (elbow joint). Most pedestal sinks are designed so that you can get to the trap from the back (generally after getting down on your hands and knees and crawling around with a flashlight). Most sink stoppers that are worked from the faucet itself have a little bar that extends down the back of the sink behind the drain. It will clip with a little metal piece to a lever that sticks out the back of the drain before the trap. The lever goes through a hole in the drain and pokes into a hole in the bottom of your sink stopper. As you move the lever, you will notice that your stopper goes up and down.
Unclip the rod from the lever and you should be able to unscrew the lever from the back of the drain (don't loose the little gasket that sits inside the screw-cap as it keeps water from leaking out here). At this point, you can pull out the stopper and see what is going on. If cleaning off the stuff attached to your stopper doesn't solve the problem, you can then remove the trap to see if anything is clogging that. Hopefully, by this point, your sink clog has been identified and you just need to reassemble, making sure when you put your stopper lever back in that you actually get it into the appropriate hole in the stopper itself.
If this doesn't solve your problem, it's more serious and you probably want to call a plumber as the issue is either a clog farther along or a problem with the venting of the sink drain.

You will need to get under there and unscrew the popup rod located on the back of the drain. pull out the rod, drop the stopper in there and push the rod through the hole in the bottom of the stopper. screw the nut back on.
