with the limited info you've supplied, I'd say you have an obstruction in your bathtub valve

low hot water pressure

Ok when I purchased the new home three years ago I never realized the problem that I'm having till a year later.That was when I tried using it for the first time ever.I get hot water with good pressure everywhere in the house except in the master bathtub.I just came down from the attic to look how the hot water pipe is ran and I noticed that it t's off to the master bedroom sink then to the bathtub.I'm also guessing that the hotwater pipe is clogged how would I be able to unglogged it.

If its a single handle, cartridge style valve- turn off water, remove the cartridge. Turn on water to flush out the valve and supply line.
Might need to replace the cartridge.
If the valve has a separate hot control, remove the stem and flush pipe and valve. Rebuild stem if needed.
