Lots of revs and burning smell

I was sitting a set of traffic lights waiting to take off (car was in sport mode) and when I did the cars revs jumped to over 5k but it wouldn't actually go anywhere. I kept letting off the throttles and trying again but it was only crawling forward but sounded like I was red lining it then a burning smell started which I assume was the poor clutch! I pulled over and let it cool down and checked for anything obvious but there weren't any warnings or anything so I started it up and kept it in comfort mode and it drove fine.

Anyone any idea why it did this? Hoping it's nothing to serious!!
