The easiest way to test the clutch pedal clearance is to push at the push rod pin attached to pedal. It should move freely if the pedal is depressed just enough to move it. If there is insufficient clearance, the pin would be stiff and you would encounter resistance.
Repair kits are available but you need to check the condition of the cylinder bore, if it is not in good condition, repairing with the repair kit would not last.
Seals seldom causes such faults unless the clutch fluid is contaminated with oil which would cause the seal to expand and this usually causes the clutch pressure to fail, which is not happening in your case.
