car shakes a lil when starting car on 1st gear

Hi everyone, i recently bought a 97 ford countour gl ,80k miles, 5sp manual transmission, i noticed when shifting into 1st and 2nd gear the car seems to
shake a lil , on the other speeds there is no problem, when im on the highway on 5th speed, the car runs like a lion no problems whatsoever, just when i shift towards 1st and 2nd gear the motor sounds a lil loud too, i just bought the car 2wks ago, im thinking it could be that one of the spark plugs is off, what do you all have to say about this, thanks in advance.

have a friend watch the engine -from the side- as you engage the clutch in first with brake on. if the engine twists more than an inch or so you have a broken mount.
otherwise may be a bad clutch
