Sounds like a failure in the clutch hydraulic actuator system, and it shares a reservoir with the brake system. When the clutch actuator master or slave develops a leak, the brake fluid runs out too.
This is dangerous and a mechanic needs to get on it soon. Not owner fixable, and not something simple which can be fixed by pouring some fluid in somewhere.

I have a 1999 sunnfire,ABS light is on and no rear tail lights. Mechcanic says its a 700 dollar fix.what can I do?

You can drive without the ABS, and you will still have a functional brake system. You will NOT have the added safety of the ABS that can helps avoid skidding when the brakes are applied. It's your call (kind of like driving with seat belts but no air bags), unless your state requires functioning ABS to pass inspection. But get the tail lights working before you get rear-ended.
