Clutch Issue

I just purchased 2006 330i with 6sp MT(32K miles). It seems like clutch is slipping in higher gears (3, 4, 5th). If I step on the gas in higher gears, the tach jumps up much higher than the cars speed and the speed catches up to the tach speed. Could this be the clutch or is this normal?
Is clutch covered under basic 4yr/50K mi warrantee?

Clutch is slipping, maybe can be adjusted as for the warranty not sure.


I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
