Is the clutch fluid reservoir empty? If so you have a leak as the fluid will not appreciably go down even with years of use. Check around the foot well inside the car and around the reservoir tank for signs of fluid loss. If the foot well carpet is soaked it is likely the master cylinder seal needs replacing. If the area around the reservoir is wet then the union from the reservoir or to the pipe connected to the slave cylinder needs to be tightened from the reservoir. If there is no sign of a leak then the leak is associated with the clutch slave cylinder, either at the pipe union, the bleed nipple or the cylinder seal. The first two will be obvious to identify on the cylinder itself. The seal leak may well be indicated by drips coming from the junction between the gear box bell housing and the engine block. The slave clutch can usually be refurbished with a repair kit that includes a new seal. Take care when removing the clutch fluid feed pipe not to bend or damage it so that it can be easily re-used when reinstalling the salve cylinder.
