I agree with jordan, that might be ur clutch slipping, mine did the same thing first signs of clutch going is "high gear slipping" doesnt mean it will slip in lower gears until you wear out your clutch more

No. And you rocking the car at lights is likely the reason for the clutch being gone. Riding the clutch is not good.
