I've noticed lately that when I back out of my garage, and then shift into first gear to drive away, that I've been getting a sort of burning smell. Seems to go away after a minute or two. Any ideas what it could be? A clutch issue?

Your inital thought that it is the clutch would be my first guess as well. If you have to back out a tight drive like I do each morning, I have to ride the clutch a bit for a couple of seconds before I get clear space so I can reach a speed that I can fully engage the trans. But, if that is the case I'm not sure it's an issue. If it starts to slip when you don't want it to,,, that is a problem.
