Hi .

Okay first check the clutch fluid level you most likely have a fluid leak from the master cylinder or the slave cylinder .

Check attachment .

What happens when fluid leaks or faulty master cylinder the pedal will not return to the up position.

if master cylinder is low on fluid lift pedal and fill with fluid then pump a few times with your hand on the foot clutch pedal.

then you may have clutch use again so you can drive to the garage for repairs .
