Floor the engine but car doesn't go!

I have an 01 Ford focus Zetec with a Manual transmission (just over 70k miles) and when I am driving and put the pedal to the floor, the engine will rev way up quickly but the car barely accelerates. Can anyone please help me as to what might be the problem or how to check for a solution?

I haven't had the car too long so haven't put it in for a service yet. Sometimes if I let go of the gas and try flooring it again it will accelerate and rev up normally or just when driving in general it will rev up normally with the pedal to the floor. I barely have to push the clutch in to change gears so I presume the clutch is new enough? It has only been happening recently. It happens more often when the engine is cold.

Thanks for any help.
