Clutch feeling weird

I was wonder how I could tell if my clutch was burning out/dieing... I have a sv1000s 2007 bought in new, and it has 27, miles on it. Recently I been feeling the clutch acting weird, not sure how to explain it but i feel I have to pull the clutch the entire way to shift and other minor problems. I have taken it to one track day, and been to the dragstrip once- prob 8runs there. Is there a certain time frame that clutches need to be replaced? I feel like a noob when it comes to clutch type stuff. Also whats some of the final signs I would run into right before it goes out? or is it an instant type problem?

try spacing the hard clutch line away from the frame, shoot for approx 1/4". it will help with line vibrations/bubbles forming
