Testing the MC is easy: Start the engine and let it idle. Press on the service brake pedal hard. Hold the pedal for at least ten minutes. If the pedal falls away the master cylinder is leaking internally between the pressure and non pressurized sides. If you have to add fluid and there are no evident leaks at the wheels the MC may be leaking into the brake servo unit. I recommend that a compentent mechanic remove the MC to determine if fluid is indeed leaking into the booster. If so both the boost unit and the MC should be replaced.
Check your brake fluid level and your brake pads and or shoes for excessive wear. Or take it to the brake shop. Either way not a good thing.
