Flat spot in third & Is my clutch stuffed?

Two questions regarding my Honda CGL 125 (Or 11hp beast as some refer to it :lol: )

Flat spot in third

When I change up into third, it dies ever so slightly - revs build up, then die down about two seconds then comes back then dies and comes back again, with me screaming various expletives at the bike. It runs on unleaded petrol.

Is my clutch stuffed?

It is becoming increasingly difficult to pull away on a hill, almost as though the clutch is slipping. And this morning, the clutch started clanking when released. Am I in trouble?
