Actually that's a good thing, it means there's probably a problem with the hydraulics which is a much less expensive repair than a clutch. But it still needs to be fixed and ASAP or it will burn up your clutch and you will have an expensive repair. Have to ever checked your brake fluid before?

There should be a little round reservoir on the firewall labeled clutch or slave cyl. Fill it up w DOT 3 brake fluid and see if that helps. A bottle of DOT is like $4 at Wally world

I can see the brake fluid reservour. It is kind of see through and it appears to be full to the line.

This is not sounding good (or reasonable on the wallet) at all.

It's a separate reservoir but it will be in the same area and probably smaller. Make sure it's full, if not it's leaking and that needs to be fixed. If it is full then it's probably the master cylinder.

And can you give me a price range on how much a master cylinder might cost?

I am sick over this. I made an appointment to bring it in but I hope to God this doesn't break me.

I'm not talking just for the part. I'm asking how much for the part and to have someone put it in for me. I have this horrible, terrible fear of very costly car repairs.

That depends on the shops labor fees winds. If I lived alot closer id get the parts and do it for you myself and all you would be out is parts. As to total cost it could be anywheres from $115 and up. At least that's w the rates around me
