Tranny troubles

Hey guys I've got a 2003 GT with 76k and the last few times I've driven I am getting a strong smell of burnt clutch when I drive it. Got any ideas what might May be the cause? It's not slipping and shifts fine, I recently changed the fluid but I keep getting that smell still..

Is it a fairly new clutch?
Or maybe, at about 80k it's nearing the end of it's life. Who knows? If it works good, keep driving it.
You can try adjusting the clutch quadrant by, firmly, lifting up on the clutch pedal and then slowly press it all the way back to the floorboard.

Factory clutch best of my knowledge, I've owned the car with 46k. Is it possible for my clutch to be worn that early?

They don't normally wear out that fast if used properly.
You don't know how it was driven the first 46k, though.

Are you sure that it's not brakes that you are smelling?

My stock clutch lasted over 120k miles.
