Clutch Issues

My clutch went out really quickly, I think I might have blown a seal. I just wanted to see if anyone else thought this. Any help would be grateful!!

If it's a manual gear-shift then a seal failure would drop fluids on the floor from the rear crank-seal... Did you replace the clutch-plate with a cheaper item?
