dark grey clutch fluid?

After only 2000 miles my clutch started to get a bit squirrelly, I hooked up my power bleeder and ran new fluid in to bleed it.
The old stuff (2000 miles) was a dark grey color, doesn't
Seem normal.
I am using the castrol gta fluid.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a rubber bit someplace is dying or you have water in the system.

Gt lma is correct for mid 1990 era trucks. Early trucks were marks on the cap for dot 3 weren't they?

Just curious, what bleeder are you using? Have been contemplating doing my clutch fluid actually.
