svt clutch help!

Just bought my new to me 2003 focus SVT 5door, Silver with blue seats. 120k miles. I bought it on tuesday, at the time the old owner had been using it strictly as a highway commuter fuel saver, drove great on test drive, mechanic said all was good except for the thermostat leaking. I have driven it about 40 miles since Tuesday on my temp plates. Just today I noticed that the clutch seemed to slip if I floored it in a higher gear. It kept getting worse. just now I needed to move it and it wouldn't stall in first gear foot on brake, clutch out, just kept running. I cant imagine I was that hard on it In such a short period of time. It even seemed fine just yesterday. And about 2 miles ago it would stall in any gear. What's wrong?
