Brake booster is the first thing that comes to mind, master cylinder is getting ready to fail, low brake fluid so master cylinder is using secondary braking system. What I would do is check the fluid level first if it is low refill and bleed all of the brakes to check for air in the system, if that didn't cure it then I would replace the master cylinder/booster assembly and flush the entire brake system. If your brake pads and shoes are in good condition that should cure it.
