when i was travelling my brakes are like stacking up and then i loose my brakes then, but
when i stop the engine and rest it for a while when i start it back the brakes are on?and i
seek the opinion of the mechanic he said that the problem was the brake master cylinder

He's right, the pedal sinking to the floor could be a leak at a caliper or one of the lines or a bad master cylinder.
