Make sure the hydraulic fluid is at the normal level. If you have had to add fluid recently, you most likely have a leak. Check that the bleeding screw is not loose. If there are no leaks the problem is either the clutch slave cylinder or the master cylinder is failing. In most cases fluid loss can be found where metal hoses change into rubber hoses. The leaks can often be found at the junctions where the two meet.

If you have fluid on the master cylinder dust cover and pedal the rear seal in the master cylinder has probably failed. If you have it on the slave cylinder then in most cases the plunger seal has went bad or you have loose lines or a bleeder valve.
