Dunno-Very strange. Were u idling in heavy traffic for long periods?
That can often cause the clutch to get hot and not be it's best. If it feels ok now, would not worry about it :)

If you had been in traffic queing and moving foward bit by bit, the car would be hot, and especially with 4 people in. :)
