Default Clutch Issue I'm new to stick

I just got a Ranger with a stick, and I didn't know it rained that hard out last night and got it stuck in mud. I rocked out out backwards quiet a ways. And now it seems like my clutch isn't so picky, I went on the highway in 4th and 5th and tried to accurate and it didn't jump in RPMs. And I put it in first let off the break and it stalled and jumped but, not as bad as it did. I don't know if I actually had to figure a clutch out in a hurry so I could get out. How fast can you wear a clutch? Like I said both of those things happened like they should I guess. And it doesn't smell or make a noise when I clutch. So am I fine? If I damaged it how do I know how bad with out taking it out? Because it was super picky like a brand new clutch.

Thanks everyone, I'm just scared I don't have money to fix the veh I just bought on the 9th.

I just taught my little brother how to drive my Ranger...if its still running after what he did to it, I'm sure yours works fine haha! But really, its probably fine. Those parts are tough. you are probably just not fully used to it yet.
