Clutch/Synchros?

I have a 2004 6Speed MT with 125k miles.
Shifting to 1st from neutral, 2nd, and 3rd gear has been hard for quite a time.(2nd gear being the worst) It also makes a thumping sound when I do. Gears do not grind, however very rarely it grinds when downshifting from 2nd to 1st.(Rarely as in 3 times in the last 3 months). It makes a thumping sound and isnt as smooth from a stop BUT with the pedal still pushed in and i shift back into 1st...It's smooth and there is no sound present.(If I let the clutch go and push it in again then shift into 1st/2nd;the thumping sound and the issue of hard shifting persists) 4th, 5th, 6th seems better but still isnt perfect. It seems like there is a force preventing me to shift Lol. I also have pulsation in my Clutch pedal. The only time I don't have clutch pulsation/vibration is when im putting it in neutral and sometimes shifting to high gears (5th/6th). Any insight on this issue is greatly appreciated.

Transmission fluid and rear Differential fluid was changed not more than 1k miles ago. Dealer said not to change the clutch it until the clutch starts slipping. I don't know the status on my pedal Lol.
