Hello, I'm Danny.

Losing brake fluid from what you've mentioned is an obvious leak in the system. You will need to remove the tire to see if a brake line or the brake caliper is loose/broken/defective. I would suggest having it repaired as soon as possible. Your truck should not be driven until repaired for fear of losing brakes entirely. Here is a tutorial to view to get you started on what to look for:

Once you figure where the leak/defect is the whole brake system will need to be bled.

Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.
