Is my clutch gone?

When I try to put the car in second gear especially when downshifting you need to push the clutch to the floor and really use a good amount of strength for it to go in gear. What is going on?

Thanks spitpilot, I think I do need to adjust my clutch cable. Another question will the situation with 2nd gear keep on getting worse or will it stay the same? Sometimes its real bad and you have to use an excessive amount of force for it to go in. It never grinds though, 3rd gear grinds if you shift too fast.
