adjust your clutch. Number one.

Two: High idle... Sticking egr, warm air reed, dirty maf, ****ty plugs, thermostat failure, a million things. Time for a service.

depends on clutch set up. Usually set the pedal height under the dash (find a spec, or match to the brake height)
in the bonnet, pull the cable sheath forward and wind the locknut toward the firewall, until the freeplay is to spec or about 1/4"

of cours if its hydraulic, you want to top up and bleed the system.
