Sounds like the vacuum brake booster may be leaking and bad.

Sounds like the brake booster seal where the brake pedal rod goes into it is leaking vacuum into the cab of the truck. Likely that the booster needs replaced.

Unless its loosing enough vacuum to make the pedal hard to press it's just annoying for now.
