Default 1997 Honda Civic Bucks in 1st gear?

Whenever i accelerate in my car it kinda revs not really accelerating, then all of a sudden it will start to accelerate. Any ideas to what may be causing this? it only happens in 1st gear.

I'm not positive, but just an idea maybe the clutch is slipping.

It sounds like you might be describing a problem with the transmission or clutch. There is not enough information to really be sure.
