It has to be going somewhere. Double check clutch slave and master cylinders, metal lines. Most often it is the clutch master cylinder. This is a single piston blind bore cylinder, located under the floorboard adjacent to the slave cylinder (not far away) Support the car on wheel ramps, and carefully get under, observe master and slave, and tubing. Use aerosol brake cleaner to flush away any dirt and fluids, top off master cylinder, then operate clutch a few dozen times, recheck for fluids. Often it leaks from the master, toward the actuating rod attached to the clutch pedal lever, behind the rubber dust boot. Only solution is replacement, and they can be tricky to bleed...
