Firstly, the driveshafts pop out each side of the gearbox. For one of these to slip I imagine would take some going. They can break in half from torsional force, but I've never seen one slip. They are hardened at each end and have a multiple tooth spline cut into them that fits precisely into the female gear box.
The clutch has both a master and slave cylinder. These are reservoirs of hydraulic fluid, the master being the one your control with your foot pedal and the slave being at the end of a hydraulic line, pushes the clutch lever on the clutch. The Slave is most often changed at the same interval as the clutch, simply because it is easily accessed while down there.
Some tests for you.
Does the care move off in any forward gear? - If its only first that you get this noise or issue, it may narrow the problem down to the internal first gear.
Does the car move off in reverse? - If you still get the noise in all forward gears, and reverse, the problem is now either located in the clutch and flywheel, or in the differential, driveshafts / CV joints.
Can you replace the fault with the car off the ground? In the safest way possible, lift the car (Axle stands a must and have a clear area in front and behind the car) see if you can replicate the situation with no load on the wheels.
