Very difficult to diagnose without full details of tool settings, the actual

Traps that a beginner might fall into using the clone tool.

Not correctly selecting the source - remember to control-click

Working on a layer under a visible layer. Turn off visibility of layers above

An inappropriate / tiny / clipboard brush - check the brush

The clone tool mode. For example registered mode clones from layer to another
layer, So you can not clone on the same layer in that mode. - change the tool

Always more than one way to get a result with Gimp, much depends on the image.
