Better to get the leak fixed, it may just be a brake cylinder. They don't make anything like a quick-fix "stop-leak" additive for brakes for obvious reasons.

If its leaking there will be brake fluid (wetness) somewhere along the line. Follow the brake lines to the back, where its wet, its leaking. If a line is leaking it needs to be replaced. If not check the calipers. If there's wetness around the seals, they're leaking and need to be replaced.
