Maybe you need a new clutch master cylinder and a clutch slave. Ask somebody to step on the clutch pedal back and forth and then check the clutch slave if it is pushing the fork ( located on the side of the transmission) back and forth too.

Thanks for the help, do you know if I may need to add any fluid to the clutch and if so where do you fill it? I noticed a little compartment by the break fluid compartment but I wasn't sure what it needed to be filled at all, because it's not. It looks like the photo you added but not the clutch slave photo the one above it.

The top photo is where you add the brake fluid (same clutch fluid). It should always be full. If not full, then there is something wrong with either the clutch master cylinder or slave. It is leaking.

Or the O rubber ring attached to the piston of the master or slave cylinder is worn out.

Are there two plastic cylinders where you can put the brake fluid? One is for brakes and the other for the clutch. The longer one is for the brakes, the shorter one is for the clutch.
