The two common causes for the clutch pedal to stick can be caused by eaither a weak clutch master cylinder or a weak slave cylinder providing the fluid level is full and there is no trapped air in the system. I would start first with checking the master cylinder to be sure its full and if it checks okay then try bleeding the system to be sure there is no trapped air in the system. If the problem remains after a good bleeding then consider replacing the master cylinder.
