Hi there
It would appear that your clutch plate lining has worn down to the point where all the free travel has been taken up by the hydraulics and the piston has popped out of the slave cylinder

often they pop out and leak out the fluid but they also cock sideways preventing the clutch to operate

the only way to drive it will to be remove 1 bolt from the slave cylinder and then crack the second bolt and the cylinder will cock sideways and release the pressure off the push rod and clutch fork end let it re engage

as a temporary measure you could replace the cup in the cylinder and use a longer push rod to get you temporarily going to get the clutch replaced

cheers Rod
