Can any body shed some light on the subject?

My car has 41500 mi. and 30000 I was the only one driving it. I am not riding clutch nor breaks, and do not hold car at stop light balancing clutch and throttle. I am aware that there is a sort of flow metering valve in the clutch hydraulic system, that can cause syptoms similar to worn clutch:

1. Feels like clutch engages at very top of the travel of the pedal.
2. There is almost no travel of the pedal left, after clutch fully engaged.

On other side: It takes half of the pedal travel to disengage clutch from being fully engaged.

My car approaching end of the warranty and I would like to have some tech insight on the subject.
Thanks in advance.

this clutch is self adjusting, so the take up point should not change much over time.

check slave/master for leaks, check fluid level. sorry, cannot contribute much used .
