    First, can you visually see the location of where fluid is leaking? Front caliper, brake hose (line), or fluid by rear brake drum (wheel cylinder). Possibly out of master cylinder into brake booster. If no visual leak then fluid is low due to worn pads. Most of fluid is down in brake calipers because pistons are pushed out. When new pads are installed pistons have to be compressed back which will force fluid back into reservoir
