Default burning clutch smell after driving

ok guys heres the story, last friday i was trying to make it uo my friends stupidly steep driveway and i had to stop at the worst point cause there was no where to park so then i found a spot and dropped the clutch bad i was so pissed at myself cause she burned bad. i hadnt burned the clutch at all sense i replaced it in may of this year. and i have done a few road trips to flag and pinetop sense and i just noticed yesterday the smell of burning clutch, but i had just got off the freeway and i didnt grind anything or granny shift and i just got done driving again and noticed it again tonight. i checked the fluid thats fine, the tranny doesnt slip and shouldnt im not grinding gears or any of that. so im out of ideas, if you have any let me know or just tell me im paranoid.
thanks guys

When you burned the clutch, it deposited some clutch material around the disk and flywheel. That's rubbing against the block and rotating parts, which is probably what you smell burning. Maybe not, but probably.

Mine always seems to make the same smell after my mom drives it for a while. She grinds the clutch a bit. It cleans up after a while.
