    I would check to see if its leaking brake fluid. Could be a number of things, but start with checking the fluid level in the master cylinder.

    If no leaks, try to bleed the brakes to remove air and water in the system.

    Grab a friend and a can of brake cleaner. Jack up the car, remove all the wheels and look for leaks around the lines around the drums or calipers and underneath the car. If none are there, check the brake booster for leaks also.
