Could be a faulty master cylinder. Don't drI've the car with bad brakes, it's dangerous. Have the car towed to your mechanic.

and if you do drive the car make sure to put brake fluid in the master cylinder resivoir,if it does'nt stop, step on the emergency brake pedal.this is good advise ,when you need to get around with no help!

Well, if you're losing brake fluid that fast or you see it leaking, have the car towed to the shop. It's not worth risking an accident, injuring yourself and others.
