gears and clutch

hi everyone. i have an issue. in the past two days i have found it hard to engage gears. especially from cold into first and reverse. the clutch doesn't seem worn out. i've driven at 30mph in 2nd/3rd/4th and 5th gear and accelerated and there is no slipping.
does anyone know what this could be? where can i find the resevoir for the hydraulic fluid for the slave cylinder and where is this too. thanks. john.

well the plot thickens. did a test on the slave. and bmw said it was fine too. so the next plan is to change the clutch. will keep you all posted.
