Bad Clutch/Slipping?

Ok so I know the normal signs of a slipping clutch. But today when i was driving In 1st gear from a stop when i start to go, i ease into it at 1500rpm while letting go of the clutch. No bogging or anything, but it felt like kind of a skipping feel with the clutch. Not slipping to the fact where if i floor it in a high gear it will just rev. I haven't really felt this before so i'm not really sure what is going on with it.

It takes off and drives just fine, but it has just been feeling a little weird lately from take off.

143xxx miles on the car, but about 120xxx on the tranny (replaced under warranty in early 02). And for anyone that doesn't know, its a 2001 Bullitt. 3650 5 speed tranny.

Do you think I might have a bad pressure plate then? I've been wanting to upgrade the clutch, if its bad it gives me some incentive.

Well mines so shot the forks tap and rattle so I have to rest my foot on the pedal to pull it off a little.
It's very bad.
I only bog because I start in very low rpms though, like 1000-1100 range.
It shakes cuz my Pressure plate is bad.
Reach down and self adjust the cable.

Pull up on the pedal till it won't go anymore the. Push it all the way to the floor
And repeat, this will adjust how it feels.
