check the linings around the master cylinder, Check the top to make sure it is on tight and is not filled up to much. While your doing that it would probably be a good idea to double check your lines so every thing else is working properly.

I have i even bent my clip more so it would be tighter but no luck i know its coming from the master cylinder because it sprays up out of it when you release the brake pedal

For sure air in the system. Grab a few tube nuts and a few small sections on brake line to flare the nuts on and bench bleed the master cylinder. Afterwards bleed about another quart or so of brake fluid around all 4 corners of the car.
