The best way to confirm your thoughts is to look for a rubber pipe coming off the reservoir about halfway down from the top. If you find this it confirms that the brake reservoir supplies the clutch. Any DOT4 brake fluid will do.

Clutch drops to floor


You have a small resevoir under the hood, like the brake fluid resevoir. This holds brake fluid also for your clutch master cylinder. See that it has fluid in it. If empty, you have a leak. If full, have someone work the clutch pedal and watch from under the vehicle to see if the clutch slave cylinder is pushing the rod in and out. (Located on the passenger side transmission bellhousing)

Clutch fluid resevoir


Clutch fluid and brake fluid are the same thing. It's usually only sold with the label "Brake Fluid", but it is used in the clutch system as well. In fact, a lot of vehicles only have the one reservoir for both brake and clutch systems. You should use DOT 4 or higher grade. Cheers.
