clutch no longer smooth

So I am on a 2k mile road trip and my new 07 sport decides to start acting weird. When I start releasing the clutch i now get a not so smooth, gittery shift. Also during reverse, as I've come off the clutch I've heard a squeal. It went away when I gave it gas. The gitters no longer allow for a smooth take off, seems to catch a little and jump. Any ideas? Is this something I should get off the road with and into a shop now? Or should I be fine for a week?

Check the fluid in the clutch master cylinder reservoir. Fill as needed and start looking for a leak.....
