in general, as the clutch wears, required effort goes UP, because the leverage angle on the pressure plate fingers is less.
I would guess the squeak is the clutch pedal.
I suspect BOTh may be the plastic-encapsulated clutch pedal return spring assembly. Cheap and easy DIY replacement when it fails.
Oh, you'll know. The pedal ill stay on the floor and rquire a toe to pull it back up.
