While accelerating, my manual transmission seems to slip. Would that be the clutch or a deeper issue?

Answer

On a manual transmission, the only way it can slip is from the clutch. If you start from a stop in second gear and the clutch doesn't grab the point and almost stalls the engine, then most likely, the clutch is on it's way out.
