Brake issue

I replaced the front right caliper and pads. When I goto to bleed the brake a little air comes out and a little bit of fluid just intermittantly comes out. Fluid in reservoir is not going down. Before brake was replaced they seemed mushy of and on. Could my master cylinder be bad?

Do you
have the same problem?
