Would this count as riding the clutch

Yesterday as i was driving i rested my left foot on the clutch pedal very lightly making sure it wasnt pushing the pedal down and i know im an idiot for even doing that but anyways i only did it when my foot was off the gas and again like i said the pedal wasnt being pushed down as i had my foot lightly on the pedal. Would that count as riding the clutch? I did it a couple time and not making a habit of it but i never smelt any burning and i know for a fact the pedal wasnt pushed down so would i be fine

    You don't have to push down to be riding the clutch. If there's enough resistance in the pedal so that your foot can't go down any further, then the throw out bearing is riding on the pressure plate fingers. Probably no great harm if your pressure is light, but still, a bad habit.
