It's probably your slave cylinder. On my '89 it was located in the clutch housing. You have to take the tranny off to get access to it. This is probably why the fluid is "disappearing." I'd suggest changing the clutch while you're at. They sell kits for this at auto parts stores.

do you mean it wont go into gear ? if so what gears ? it could be the clutch going out , if the pedal is soft or easy to push down than it probably needs a clutch. next time it wont go into gear try pumping the clutch or putting it from 2nd to 1st or what ever gear it has problems with
Check the clutch master cylinder, the line to the slave cylinder on the bellhousing and the slave for leaks. If fluid is low there is a leak. Master can "bypass" as well similar to a brake master in which case it wont leak but the slave won't move when the clutch is applied. If that system is working then the clutch likely has worn out.
Pushing the clutch pedal it to disengage the clutch, so your description is confusing. But if a car creeps when the clutch is down, you must immediately adjust the clutch, or you will ruin the transmission. However I believe you have a hydraulic clutch linkage, so the slave or master cylinder could also be bad. Peel back the rubber boots to check for leakage.
no, there is no clutch adjustment. the clutch is hydraulic, and self adjusting, there are several things that can go wrong with these. with normal wear the fluid can run low allowing air into the system, causing a weak peddle. they can also develop leaks in the master and slave cylinders resulting in fluid loss also causing a weak peddle leading to an inopperative clutch. check the fluid level in the clucth master cylinder(next to the brake master cylinder. if it is empty, refill it(it takes brake fluid) then cycle the clutch peddle a few times and check for leaks. if there is air trapped in the line the clutch will need to be bled. there is a bleeder screw on top of the slave cylinder, bleed it just like bleeding brakes.
I can't remember if that year has a clutch master cylinder or not. Check to see if it does, it will be next to the brake master cylinder, and look like a single round silver dollar sized vesle. To the left of your brake master cylinder. check if its bone dry, if so refill it.
if this is not the case and it does not have a master cylinder, you need to check your clutch out.
