Yup clearly theres a leak somewhere. Master/slave cylinders are reletively cheap.
Check around the slave cylinder on the front of the transmission. Hondas use external slaves, fluid in the bell housing should not be an issue.
Also check on the firewall under the master, on both sides (IE engine bay side and where the pedal is) for leaks.
In the mean time the soft pedal is most likely because youve introduced air into the system. Bleeding it may temporarily fix the soft pedal. Otherwise its due to the fluid leaking past the piston seals on either cylinder. Its possible it firms up because its the slave cylinder and when it gets hot from the tranny/engine it seals up.
Check it first I guess
