Calling all 2012 focus members with a five speed manual transmission

My issue is missing and hesitation in first and second gear mostly, does anybody else have this issue when taking off in first gear sometimes the car will miss and hesitate?? You do not notice this on the tack as if the engine was actually missing. I decided to drive the car down a long alleyway with buildings on each side to see if I could hear any spark knock in the engine. When the car does hesitate it does spark knock a few times right before hesitate? Almost like the spark plug is firing before the mixture is ready which results in that whole power stroke being missed. I have no check engine lights or codes present. Any help will be great thanks a lot.
