Burned clutch?

So my clutch feels a little different. I can't tell exactly what it is, it just feels different recently. Feels like its slipping a tiny bit from a stop, but i checked and it still will stall in each gear if I just let go of the clutch. Yesterday i was driving and someone jaywalked in front of me so i pushed the clutch in and revved it up (going about 15mph) and then while the rpms were still high i began to slowly take the clutch out while giving it some gas. Did I burn the clutch a little? It is still 100% driveable, just feels slightly different.

Notchy or just a high release point?

Neither, it just feels like it doesn't grab as hard, it still grabs and holds. I did the 5th gear check when I'm stopped and put it in 5th and then rev it and let the clutch go, it stalled. I also cruised in 5th at 20mph and gave it a lot of gas and it felt fine, the engine bogged but the clutch was fine. I also started on a flat only letting the clutch out super slow with no gas and it went just fine.

The clutch cable does feel slightly notchy going in and out, not much though and it feels the same as before I felt the change.

It probably has something to do with what I did yesterday, but I have no idea.

Try launching in 3rd. Usually if the clutch is slipping, it won't take off in 3rd.

Mines like notchy and jumpy from a stop and high release point.. I got a steeda quadrant I'm putting in.. Do I need to look into a new clutch?

I was going to suggest a new quadrant but you have one so I'd say your cable will also need to be replaced possibly. How old is your clutch? Try the above "test" try to launch in 3rd or see if you stall out in 4th....

I haven't put the quadrant in yet.. Hope it's in the mail today.. As for the clutch it's aftermarket.. Was in there when I got the car.. It's purple they thought probably a zoom.. What should happen in the launch in 3rd with the parking brake on it will kill in 4th and 5th
