Ahyep, sounds like you got yourself a leaker.
Not pushing in enough on the pressure plate to fully release the clutch.
Like hookuspookus said, you probably have a slave cylinder going bad/leaking.
Also the clutch master cylinder too. It could be weak and not applying enough pressure to the slave cylinder to fully activate it.
