Default 1/2 yr old......Clutch slipping?

I change the clutch in my 2001 like 1/2 years ago but right after the change there were burning smell coming out of the engine compartment when I drive in toll 5mph stop and go traffic. I figure maybe it's just oil spill smell during installation and it well go away.

Nope it's back! I was in traffic the other day the smells back(robber burning smell) and I stall the car cause I constantly have to rev the RPM higher than normal to keep it moving or else CLANK CLANK CLANK(dead)

SO I though maybe I just let it cool off over night BUT NOPE still I have to rev the car in higher RPM than usual or it would stall or shack back and forth and would feel like the clutch is slipping and no gripping.

I'm new to this manual thing but you guys kow what the problem is? I do abuse it sometimes..........2nd gears the weakest
