2013 SE Manual Trans hesitation in all gears


New guy here. I'm driving my first Ford, a 2013 Focus SE manual trans with 1700 miles on it. Left for work this morning and while driving the mile to get out of my neighborhood the car operated fine. Once pulling out onto a major road the car hesitated in every gear. It did not jerk when accelerating, it just was very slow, regardless of which gear I put it in.

I had this feeling that it could be computer related or the whole thing needed a "do over" so I pulled over, shut it off and immediately started it back up. Then it was back to its normal peppy self.

Looking into this problem online, and even comments by the sales staff at the dealership seemed to indicate that this was possible with the DCT. Since mine is a manual, I was wondering if anyone had seen anything similar before. Thanks!
