While this would better go to the gimp-user mailing
list, I'll go ahead and clear it up.  You're using the
clone tool, as a clone tool.  To use it as a pattern
copy tool, you'll need to double click on that tool
and set the option to use a pattern source.  If you
instead want to use it as a clone tool, you have to
hold down Control the first time you click it to set
the source location.

Happy GIMPing,
