Clutch problem. Need advice

My clutch petal goes all the way to the floor and does not come back up.
It has been acting funny for a couple of weeks. Sometimes it goes about 1 inch from the floor before working and then it will return to about half way.
I added fluid two days ago and that helped. But today I get in the rover to take a drive and it goes all the way to floor. I have not seen any fluid on the ground, but it must be losing fluid when I'm driving. So, what do I need to replace? Slave or Master or both? 300 tdi with r380.

All the way to the floor with no return usually indicates master,it may be leaking into the bulkhead.

I'd still replace both and make sure to lube the pin end on the slave. Master is fiddly to get to but slave is easy. Both should be bench bled before install.

On a more destructive note, they could both be good and the release fork could have punched through at the center pivot. You would have most likely felt and heard this tho... Start with the easy stuff. Trevor @ rovahfarm should have everything
