Well... find a pair of headphones that you know work fine, and plug them into the iPod. Does it still do the same thing? If it does, it's probably the iPod. If not, it's your earbuds.
Take your iPod earbuds and try them in another device (CD player, computer speakers, etc). If you don't have the same problem, it's the iPod. If you do have the same problem, it's the earbuds.
Either way, if you got the iPod last Christmas, you ought to still be under your warranty. You can go here to either order replacement headphones, or send in your iPod for service.
