Default Can't(VERY HARD) get into gear !!! HELP!!!

Had a nice Valintines Day but this morning the PTs acting up on me. While I was driving the clutch pedal suddenly feels hard and have very little travel or engagement. Also shifting into gear especially 1st got from notchy to impossible. I need both hand to force it in to 2nds gear and I'm not weak either. I'm lucky i got the car home.

Could it be the:

1)Low Tranny old?........not likely
2)Tranny problem?........hope not
3)the clutch disk need replacement?.........very lilely but still expensive to change

I have 67K on it and I use it to learn manual so the clutch going out is likely but hope it wouldn't lead to more problems. ......suggestions?

BTW how much would it cost to change a clutch? $500?

Thanks
