92 Ranger Clutch Problems

I recently bought a 1992 ford ranger with a V8 5.0L swap with a C5 transmission i believe. It has been running great and driving well but i drove it, it drove fine then i parked it for 3 days and went to drive it again. Once i started it the truck wouldn't go into gear. We then filled the clutch fluid up with DOT 3 brake fluid. We then pumped the clutch and it got stiffer and began to feel like a clutch. Then we started it and the truck still wouldn't go into gear. I then looked under it and between the engine and transmission it was dripping/leaking fluid. Then i think it could have been because i pumped the clutch up so much. My thoughts is it could be a seal somewhere in the transmission or between the engine and transmission, Or it could be the clutch main cylinder also known as a slave cylinder. I need some help deciding what to do or what to buy please help me out in the comments.

I would suspect a leaky slave. Is it brake fluid or engine oil coming out?
