It's possible g/box but more likely to be clutch when all gears are affected .Could need a new master cyl if leaking or drawing air but worth trying bleeding first .

Glad to help .Take bustedknuckles advice also as gear linkage is very common fault also , especially if a lot of play on gearstick.Usually costs about £100 /£120 parts and labour to replace.
