Acceleration problem

Recently i started getting one problem with my car. When i start driving on first and second gear the car acts strangely. I push the accelerator, car doesn not do anything, RPM and Speed does not move, and after a couple of seconds it rev up, both RPM and Speed go up.
I think it is clutch slipping, but i have read if it slips, the RPM will go up, but not the speed. In my case RPM and Speed go up together, but after i push for some time on Accelerator pedal.
So what it could be.
Could it be Fuel filter or injectors not givving enough fuel?

Is your parking brake on? Check the rear calipers/drums and parking brake cable....they could be siezed. I don't think the clutch is slipping.
Actually a year ago my rear wheels end up in water, after some flash flooding, and the next day i wanted to drive the car and it did not move, i had to jack up the car , remove passenger rear wheel and bang with resin hummer the rear drum, after a couple hits it started moving again. But it never happend again, maybe my rear brake is rusted and something failed in there, i wanted to fix it but do not have right tool for hub nut right now.

I hope it is only rear brakes or parking brake.

Thanks i will start getting ready for rear brake job.
Does the car bog?? If it bogs maybe its time for a tuneup??
