Welcome to 9th gen.

How many miles on the car? When was the trans fluid changed last (if ever)?

It is generally accepted here that trans fluid should be changed about every 30k miles. It did make a difference for my car, as well.

For this case, I will assume the actual clutch disk, pressure plate and flywheel are in working order:
That said sounds like the problem could be in the clutch release system.
Check the clutch master cylinder fluid level.
If it's low could be a leaking piston seal
or internal leak of the clutch delay valve.
