I would say that if the clutch is new it would probably be the slave or master cylinder for the clutch system that has failed. I would look for brake fluid leaking from one of these components and check the fluid level in the reservoir for clutch, most take brake fluid.

thanks for the help but i found out it was the pressure plate and it snapped and fried my clutch out so i need to do a whole clutch repair kit and slave cylinder to get it fixed...all in all about 1300!
