clutch fluid leak/dirty fluid

so I slowly am losing fluid in my vette. I fill to step as needed. I think I've done this 3 times and the first two I don't remember the fluid being dirty but this last time it looked really dark.

what am I looking at here? a master or slave that's leaking? is this an emergency I should quit driving it?

is there a way to easily diagnose this?

it's a pain in my tail cause it seems it's directly effecting my abilities to drive this sucker the way it needs to be driven. makes me jerky.

any help is appreciated.

thanks

Clint

Most likely the slave inside the bellhousing is leaking. There is a drain hole at the bottom of the bellhousing. Is it wet? Get ready to do a whole clutch kit while it's torn down.
