May need bleeding

The only reason for bleeding is if air entered. This doesn't just happen by chance. If the brake fluid isn't leaking from anywhere and the fluid level is good, it's likely that the Master Cylinder has failed. Be sure to check for fluid leakage into the Brake Booster too. Kind of a Double-whammy.

Yes but does happen it could very well be a wheel cylinder leaking ...never hurts to check
