Other than something odd, rare, internal in the trans/differential, the symptoms indicate a worn out clutch disc. But usually that is noticed as the car movement engage point being high almost to top of pedal stop. And some rpm 'slippage' noticed under engagement/ acceleration. Usually more apparent in the higher gears.

I was hoping it would be something simple like a fluid level but it sounds like I need to pull the transmission.

A loss of fluid causing air in hydraulic line would cause clutch pedal to go soft and you would not be able to change gears.
