Default Clutch Issue - Help!

I believe my throwout bearing has been making noise - a little rattle with clutch out and then silence when in. Also, the other day the little clutch pedal helper spring broke (dont know that this is related)

Tonight I go to drive and it is VERY hard to select gears. They go but with some force, more than normal. Then comes a point where the car acts as if the clutch is engaged when the pedal is pressed. Turn car off. 15min later i go to hobble home in ghetto mode and start it in reverse and some gas. Then when i put clutch in to select 1st it seems like its back to fine. Drives home as it did before problem arose.

Once at home it did seem a little hard to select the gears again. Obviously there is an issue, but why would it go away briefly?
