Clutch problem

I have a 1998 Nissan Altima, manual transmission. It has about 104K miles. Recently I started having problem with the clutch. When I press the clutch to switch gears, specially from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd, the tach does not drop all the way to 700rpm. Sometimes the tach drops a little and sometimes it just stays put when I change gears. Also sometimes when I press the clutch (to change gears) the rmp goes up. Does anybody know why this is happening? Do I need to change transmission fluid or I have something more serious? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Your clutch may not be disengaging all the way, but just enough to slip. Take a look at the disk its self and see how thin it is or have a trans shop do it. Do it soon because if it is doing this it won't take long to wear out all the way and not move the vehicle at all.
When replacing your altenator, make sure your battery is fully charged.
