Welcome to the forum pbogatko

Sounds like your clutch slave cylinder is leaking, which is very common from not flushing and bleeding the fluid yearly (same with the brakes) . If so, it is full of gunk and the fluid starts leaking into the engine and eventually outside and will eat the paint off the rear engine case. Flushings will not remove the gunk, only a proper removal and cleaning will remove the gunk in the slave cyl.
