It may be the clutch master cylinder is bad or the slave cylinder. It is best to replace them both as an assembled unit as then it would have ben bled properly as it is a b**ch to bleed. Just go to your local parts store and they can get the assembly.

I read online and my book and it was kinda mentioning that so I'll try that thanks

When you take out the slave cylinder, look inside that opening, make sure the fork inside will only move back and forth just a little bit, what ever the play is before the release bearing hits the fingers of the pressure plate. Thats all it should move.

What if it moves to much

Then there may be a problem with the pressure plate, release bearing, or the fork being worn. The trany would have to be dropped in order to see exactly what would be going on for repair.

Oh but forget that, forgot you replaced all that, was the fork in good shape? And the pivot ball?

Ok thank you for all the advice
