Sounds like your clutch master or slave has devloped a leak. I can't say specifically for the RX-7's but typically cars like that run a hydraulic clutch setup. A good place to start is checking the fluid level. Since the clutch may have worn the fluid level might be low anyways, but if it appears to be empty or at the very bottom I would be checking for leaks. Master cylinders in my experiences usually leak into the cab of the vehicle. You just need to look up under the dash to where the top of the clutch pedal attaches to the master, sometimes it might be hard to see, so just feel around, if you feel any moisture theres is a good chance thats it. The slave cylinder just jack the car up and have a look underneath, follow the clutch lines down until you see the slave, these will leak externally and be easy to see. Also if either of these parts have been changed recently it wouldn't hurt to bleed the system again. Also if the master has been changed or you are going to change its always a good practice to bench bleed it first. Here is a link on the process Its written to do a brake master but they are pretty much identical.
Hope this helps

Clutch petal stays up with too much pressure car stays in neutral like pedal is pressed to floor

Sounds like an internal clutch/pressure plate issue. Possible broken torsional vibration spring in the clutch assembly keeping clutch engaged. The transmission will have to be removed and clutch inspected/replaced.

If you're talking about an hydraulic clutch system that uses brake fluid:
1. Fill the reservoir with clean brake fluid.
2. Have an assistantpull the clutch pedal up and leave it there.
3. Locate the slave bleeder - the slave is connected to the master, is located on the transmission housing and pushes the clutch release lever).
4. Open the bleeder and have the assistant push the clutch pedal down.
5. Close the bleeder.
6. Make sure there's plenty of fluid in the reservoir
7. Repeat steps 2-4-5-6 until brake fluid comes out with uniform pressure from the bleeder. Non uniform pressure is sign there may be air in the system.
There should be good pressure at the pedal now in the up position. Pressing it should disengage the clutch.

My clutch pedal is stuck to the floor??

It is most likely a hydraulic clutch, and it is most likely leaking at the clutch slave cylinder. Check the clutch master cylinder for fluid, it should be a small master cylinder looking thing with a fill cap next to the brake master cylinder and booster unit. If it is empty fill it with the same dot 3 brake fluid that you use for your brake master cylinder, and make sure that you are pouring the fluid into the clutch master cylinder reservoir and not the rubber seal that should be under the fill cap. After filling the clutch master cylinder up with fluid, then try and pump up the clutch pedal. It might take a while to pump up hydraulic pressure, and you might also have to work the pedal a few times by hand at first.

Also, you might have to bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder if it will not build up enough pressure to release the clutch.

Sounds like the cylinder/piston for the hydraulic clutch is leaking by -- failed seals -- it can be rebuilt, but it's easier to just trade it in for a rebuilt one (at Pep Boys, for example).

Clutch pedal stays on floor when released

check the helper spring on the clutch pedal. You'll have to get down in the driver's footwell and using a flashlight look at the mechanism while you push the pedal down (and pull up). If the spring isn't missing or broken and everything looks okay, then change the clutch master cylinder. The piston in the cylinder is probably binding due to corrosion in the bore. I have an 1986 and had the same problem. Changing the clutch master cylinder fixed it.
