03 Clutch fluid issue!

Hi I just recently (in the last three weeks) replaced my clutch and slave cyl. I followed guides and had help to do the whole thing. I first had the fluid filled with brake fluid, DOT 3/4.. then I read that in my truck I should use Mercon V ATF fluid.. So I did, and it ran for a day, but last night the pedal went to the floor, and the fluid squirts out of the top of the clutch reservoir.. Should I try and bleed DOT 3/4 back into it? help?

The ATF is only for the trans itself the clutch should use DOT 3/4 brake fluid only.
