Just a thought, but if you haven't been using your car much, the clutch might be damp.
Certainly on my car, if I don't use it for a week, the clutch judders when pulling away, and I have found that deliberately slipping the clutch for a short while seems to cure the judder, at least until the next time I don't drive it for a week or so.

I only bought the car Friday I did not notice it to begin with ive been told it could be misfiring at low revs ive changed the spark plugs so the next thing I'm going to check is the coil pack ive also read that a faulty lambda sensor can cause this juddering??

It only happens on pull away its fine every other time could that be engine mounts still
You may have to live with it , the juddering occurs when the clutch plate face doesn’t make a smooth contact with the face of the flywheel when the two make that initial contact , always more noticeable on a standing start first gear change if there’s a problem when the 2 meet up , once the weight of the car is rolling along there’s less weight to pick up between the flywheel & the clutch as the 2 surfaces touch during gear changes , hence no juddering.

Would a new clutch and flywheel not sort it out

It should do , providing when it’s done you allow everything to bed in nicely.
Cheers mate I will look at getting it done its not slipping and the gear change is all smooth the clutch pedal feels OK and the biting point is OK I'm having it looked at by my mechanic in a minute so will see what he says
