Your brake piston seals have failed. It's time for a brake job, ASAP.
Don't drive it.
If you do must drive it, make sure to top off the brake fluid reservoir first and go only as far as the closest brake shop to get it fixed.

I am leaking oil and need to replace master cylinder

Well the master cylinder should have brake fluid in it, not oil. Oil belongs in the oil pan on the bottom of the crankcase. On a car that old it is not unusual for it to leak, often times leaking in more than one place. Cost to repair versus benefit of no leaks has to be considered. Gaskets around the valve covers and oil pan are likely places to find leaks. Working on brakes requires some knowledge, can be dangerous to work on them yourself, replacing the master cylinder is usually straightforward disconnect the brake lines, remove the nuts holding it onto the vacuum boost, bolt the new one in place, reconnect the brake lines. Then it must be bled and therein lies your lament.

Likely your power booster is leaking vacuum. If so it needs to be replaced. Noise is under dash near where the brake pedal rod goes into the firewall?
