Clutch problems!!! HELP PLEASE!

I drive a 98 323is 175k. It started about a month ago with a creaky clutch, every time I would push it down it felt rough and harsh. That slowly turned into a squeaking clutch pedal every time I pushed it. Then last week the clutch was hard, I could only push it half way down and when I released there was no friction point. Now early this week the car completely stopped going into gear. It goes into gear only when the car is off and not rolling. It moves but only when I start the car in gear but when I turn it on the car jerks forward while turning on then drives normally. I never noticed a leak but I was told it could be the slave so I replaced it, still no help. Has anyone ever had these issues or now what's wrong with my car. Help pleaseee!!! Cars sitting on jacks in my garage now
