I was driving my stanza when I went to shift into second gear the clutch got stuck so I pulled it up with my foot and when it popped up the clutch was still engaged as if I was still holding down the clutch but it was popped up and when I looked on my floor board there were bits of rubber and a piece of metal that reminded me of some kind of rivet or lock bolt

Do you
have the same problem?

The piece that fell out is probably the pin that holds the clutch push rod to the pedal. There is a clevis pin clip that would have had to come off in order for it to have come out.
I am attaching a diagram of the clutch system so you can see the parts I am talking about.

Do you still have fluid in the system, is there any sign of fluid leaking from the rear of the master cylinder?

I would say it is a mechanical failure in the clutch assembly and the box will have to be removed to inspect further.
