Usually this means the clutch master cylinder has a problem. What you need to do is get an assistant to help you bleed the system. The reason it's not returning is because or usually because the slave cylinder isn't pushing against the shift fork. This is either because there is air in the system, or because the master can't push the fluid into the slave cylinder anymore. Bleeding this is like bleeding brakes, have them push it down, open the bleeder on the slave cylinder, then let the air out, close the bleeder and have them pull up on the clutch pedal. Continue this until the pedal returns on it's own. IF you can't get it to return on it's own, replace ti and rebleed the system.

It is on the slave cylinder mounted on the transmission, you may be able to access it from the top under the hood, I am not 100% sure, it's been a long time since I did one on a mazda, do believe it's on the driver side.

This sounds like the clutch master cylinder has failed to be honest. When it won't come back it's because the slave cylinder isn't pushing on the pressure plate.
If you have a helper, watch the slave and see if it's pushing when you press the pedal, if it is and it's still not returning, it's got a problem with the pressure plate.
Do you need more help?
