The clutch master cylinder is bad and leaking pressure internally. You need to have it repaired or replaced.

Did you adjust the master cylinder to pedal push rod clearance correctly?
Too much clearance, meaning the clutch engages at a low pedal height, or insufficient clearance, a high pedal height can cuase the problem described.

Was the system bled correctly?
Is the slave cylinder leaking?
