Sounds like the master cylinder is leaking. Needs a new one.

guess i'll get a new one next paycheck. It should be ok if I keep the fluid up. I think I'll just take it to a dealership and let them change it. Thanks for the info

Yeah theres no gasket on the firewall. Sounds like the piston is somehow leaking. You are most likely still going to be taking air into your lines, so I wouldn't drive on it too long like that. It's not a hard job, but it's time consuming ( mostly bleeding everything )...
