So I rode my bike to Walmart last night and when I left notice when I full throttle in first and second I hear a clunk and it feels like the chain gets caught. It causes the bike to jump a little. Today I figured out the chain was lose so I tightened it then clean and lubed the chain aswell. When I spin the wheel the chain seems to stick to the rear sprocket. And sometimes won’t go into the teeth. Any suggestions?

That chain and sprocket is completely worn out, time to source some new parts.

yikes be aware you might need a replacement spacer + chain and sprockets from JT sprockets or david silver spares

It's amazing when they get that way and it makes the bike "surge" going down the road... I actually had customers back in the day ask what was wrong with the engine because of the tight and loose feel of the chain and sprockets. Haven't seen a set that bad in a while

I had a customer bring in a CL72 once, telling Me ,"the transmission is out. It started slipping so I tightened the rear chain, it worked for a while but now it is slipping again." Pulled the left side cover and found an aftermarket front sprocket, worn perfectly round, no teeth left at all.

New chain, both sprockets. The old rear sprocket has a spacer that has to be swapped to the new sprocket. If that's worn out there are aftermarket ones available.

I wouldn't even ride with the sprocket that worn.
Asking for trouble.

Doing both sprockets and the chain is the way to go.

I sometimes wonder...........anyways you now know when a chain and sprocket are worn out, long before they get to this state. I wonder which way round the spring clip is fitted, but it may be an endless chain.............I wonder how the rest of the bike is. You have a manual ?? you need one dude.
