And what does slipping mean?
This definitely sounds like a bad throw out bearing, I let mine go too long and it got real bad 3 hours from home. It began making this horrible screeching noise, and if it wasn't doing that it was making a nasty grinding noise. I would get the clutch kit replaced when you can, otherwise you could deal with what I had to.
And to answer your question about slipping, it is when you press your gas pedal and the rpm's shoot up without your car accelerating like it should. If you have it, you will definitely know something is wrong.
