look very carefully at your rims and u may see brake fluid on the rim or tire ... it;s being cycloned as you drive. If your parked and keep your foot on the brake .. you will see where it's leaking

My car is parked.. Im scared to drive it because the brakes aren't hard.. So it's possible that I have a leak? And if so where do I go to get it fixed?

Have it towed to your nearest garage or brake shop.

Okay.. So will I have to get the brakes fixed?? I'm just trying to figure out money wise.. Sorry for all the questions.

No way to know .. it could be anything from a bad brake cylinder to a loose connection

Thank you so much. I went and looked again and my front two rims are black now and on the passenger side on the ground I can see the leak on the rocks
