An inoperative clutch can be simply worn out. Clutches are made from similar material to brake pads, and much like brake pads, they wear out with use. Another possibility is a hydraulic issue. A leaking or faulty slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder will also keep your clutch from working. I suggest seeking professional help such as YourMechanic. A mechanic will be able to check it out for you and give you a proper diagnosis of why your clutch is not working.
