Welcome to the forum. We love pictures here.
The hydraulic clutch system may be a problem if it doesn't release properly and you can't shift it easily. There is no adjustment for it.
But the dropping down a gear is a different situation. Maybe explain how it does it. When rolling along after shifting up into 2nd gear?

Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.
