I am not an expert but have learned more than I want to know about A/C systems in the last 4 months. I am almost sure your compressor died a "Black Death" and is seized internally. With your engine cool, grab the front of your compressor and see if you can turn it. You probably can't or might be able to turn with extreme force. If this is the case you need a replacement compressor. As for the clutch is is a 50/50 chance it has some damage. If it were my car I would replace both clutch and compressor along with at least the drier and make sure you get it flushed thouroughly by a GOOD A/C mechanic.
