If it still has the original chain and sprockets, it's probably due for a new chain and sprockets. I usually hope for around 19-20K miles for a chain and many more aggressive riders seem to get around 15K. Two things to check for - Look for any kinks in the chain and check your chain for how low it is hanging. IIRC, more than an inch or so of chain sag means the chain either needs adjustment or replacement.
General rule of thumb - Replace your sprockets when changing the chain or the next chain will not last very long.
