Strange Engine Idling

My engine ran great for about 50 miles until here recently it’s doing something strange. Every time I engage my clutch, the engine idles high. SOMETIMES... not all the time. It also isn’t consistent idles, sometimes it revs extremely high, other times I get so low rpms my engine almost dies. Sometimes it’s normal. I have checked for vacuum leaks. Could it be an issue with the clutch? I’ve taken the carburetor and adjusted everything. Still the same results. It seems it only revs high when I engage the clutch fast vs. if I engage it slowly. I’m new to the hobby and wonder if a new carb might work? I’ve seen other folks with this problem, but my case seems a little odd.

any info is appreciated
