Engine bogs down on 1st gear

Transmission and Clutch

Vehicle Information: Model: 964; Year: 1992; Body Type: Convertible; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.6L; Total Mileage: 117K;

Yesterday when starting car with gear on 1st and clutch all the way down, I felt car jumps a little forward as soon as starter turn. This morning car starts ok with clutch all the way down and on 1st gear, but at complete stop car borgs down, felt like engine under power and engine also shaking as if one like to move car on 3rd gear at complete stop. Car now still having the original clutch, and it has 117000 miles on the clock. Is the clutch begining going bad? For now to start moving after come to a complete stop I have to give it a little gas with little clutch released.
