We added brake fluid but it does not seem to be getting into the actual Reservoir tank. We poured it into the top but it does not go down into the Reservoir tank, it just sits in the spout where you fill it

There should be a fine strainer just under the filler car could it be restricted? It should not be as there should be no debris in the brake system hydraulics. If the fluid needs to be topped up either the brake pads are worn or there is a leak which in either case needs to be investigated.
