[200q20v] Did I fry my clutch?

I dropped it at about 3k rpms(I know, bad idea, especially with a chipped 
car), the revs flew but the car didn't. It accelerated at about half it's 
usual pace. I immediately turned into a parking lot, and when I got out, 
there was a strong burnt rubber kind of smell. I know the tires hadn't 
spun-out, so it must have been the clutch.

Driving it around for the rest of my errands, I didn't notice any slipping of 
the clutch, but the smell continued. Something is definitely wrong, and I'm 
afraid it's going to cost me!!

If it is the clutch, will I make things worse by continuing to drive the car? 
What would be a good source for the part, and what should I expect to pay in
