You should be fine for now (with the caveat, you never know ... anything is possible). The second guy you talked to who adjusted it for you is correct. You need to find a mechanic who will figure out why it has stretched. It may be that the cable has already started to fray or come apart somewhere along its length. I would surmise that it's only a matter of ...

The clutch actuator that pushes the clutch pushrod for the the throwout bearing and the pressure plate from the left side of the engine to the right side of the engine through the primary shaft has a ball and ramp setup.
