You have eeither a pressure plate or disc failure. It may need a new clutch.

Make sure the fluid is full and the slave cylinder is moving the arm.

If the pedal feels different, then the slave or clutch master may be the issue. I would have that checked first before replacing the clutch.

That was me that said that but anyway, the slave on the side of the transaxle assembly. I tis a small round cylinder and has a boot on the end and you will see an arm, small, that is coming out of it. It is short and may be covered by a rubber boot. If you dont see it, go to a shop and have them check it for you.

Make sure you bleed it or you will still have no pedal.
