VOLVO S40 RPM PROBLEM

1996 Volvo S40 • 100,000 miles

I have a manual transmission and the engine revs up when im not even pressing the gas. Sometimes it goes up to 2000 rpms and stays there and other times it bounces up and down about 500 rpms from 1500 to 2000 and about 2500 to 3000. Im thinking that my clutch might be going bad but I really dont know much about manuals. Do you have any idea what could cause this?
