Thanks in advance for your input

It's usually called a "schedule conflict". "Class conflict" makes it sound like Mao's Cultural Revolution or some other pseudo-Marxist conflict.

timetable clash

Pondian note: 'timetable' wouldn't be used in AmE to refer to a schedule of classes (that would be a 'schedule'). IME 'timetable' is non-figuratively used in AmE most often in connection with trains.

I might say I have (not "am having") one class scheduled in conflict (not "confict") with another, or that one of my classes conflicts with another. But more likely I would just say, "I have a schedule conflict", or if the context of scheduling was already clear, "I have a conflict".
Note incidentally that "conflict" is one of those words where the first syllable is accented when it's a noun and the second syllable when it's a verb. In the previous paragraph, it's "one of my classes conFLICTS with another", but all the other examples use CONflict.
or do you say you are having a class clash?

No, "clash" is not the word.

Eh? Well, it's not the word here.

Oh, it isn't about Marxism.
You can say either.
