That was going to be my next question.. but I'd assume it'd fight on other gears as well.. try sitting with the car off, in first gear.. put your foot under the clutch pedal and pull up on it, then push it down.. if the clutch is out of adjustment it'll click.. unless its beyond worn..
or it could be an internal transmission problem.. synchros/fork/etc..
