Clutch gets stuck??? Help anything would work.

This all happened whenever I drove over the smallest speed bump so idk wtf happened. I engage the clutch it goes in, but it goes from being super light to stupid heavy and before this issue the clutch was super heavy... Whenever I go to disengage the clutch the pedal gets stuck just after the grab point so I have to kick the clutch pedal to the side for it to come back to me and it comes up really fast and hits the plastic and this only happens a few times after startup. I havenít had time to take a look at it, but first thing tomorrow morning Iím unbolting some trim pieces and check the brake fluids.

Check under the car and see if you see any fluid dripping from the bottom of the bellhousing. There's a good chance your clutch slave cylinder is failing/ has failed.
