Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Achieva
Your description does sound like M/C issue, but the amout of fluid is not much, that comes out...
It is brakes, so forget it and just replace the M/C. Also, pick up enough fluid to bleed all brakes and GET A M/C BLEED KIT, which are little hoses that screw in where brake lines attach to M/C, and route into the brake fluid reservoirs...Bleed until no air, then carefully remove one at a time, and install the brake line.
Now, do not allow M/C fluid to drop, or start all over again....
So, now continue bleeding at each wheel. At the end of it all, you want to do a "lift your **** off the seat" application of the brakes, as hard as you can. If the system passes this test, it usually will be good.
I presume that you have inspected each brake and found no faults...leaks, or anything.
