help me please :(

So a few nights ago my brake light came on, meaning that my master cylinder was low on fluid, it went off later that night so i disregarded it. Today i was driving my car and everything was ok until tonight. I was leaving the mall and i shifted gears and i noticed that my clutch pedal was really spongy..

By the time i got back to my area maybe 15 minutes later i had almost no clutch pressure and it was hard for me to shift gears. I got home and tried to bleed out my slave cylinder and now i have no pressure at all. What happened???

Your clutch master is shot. Look under the dash and check for leakage around the clutch master cyl. Also, have someone push on the pedal while you keep an eye on the rubber line going to the slave, sometimes it'll balloon out when the inner liner of the hose goes bad. But I think your problem is the clutch master cyl.

So this morning when i woke up i decided to get under the car and bleed out my clutch again..

After about 10 minutes i started to get pressure back in my pedal, does that mean my clutch master isnt shot?

You are losing fluid somewhere. Better check your clutch master cyl before you have break fluid soaking through your carpet.
