There has to be seperate resivoirs for the clutch and brakes. Or else everytime you pressed the clutch you would stop as well and vise versa.
As for the rough gears then smoothing out, my guess would be you live somewhere that is cold no? Tranny fluids have wieghts just like motor oil. Lighter fluids need to be used during colder months to allow better lubrication. So that would explain why after driving the gears have time to warm up and becomes easier.
Check the clutch fluid levels and maybe bleed the clutch, get some new fluid in there.
and you cant "adjust" a clutch.
