Clutch failure for a Renualt Megane 1.6 petrol - need some help...

I got to the robot and stopped as it was red then when it finally open then I heard a bang from the front and my clutch was not there. It was just soft and I couldn't select gears. There is no brake fluid in the cylinder but looks like some fluid came out from somewhere. what can be the cause or problem? Will the clutch be okay if I pour brake fluid?

This reads as if either the clutch master cylinder or the clutch slave cylinder has failed. If it's the slave cylinder then there may be fluid on the friction surfaces of the clutch and it will need a new clutch. In the circumstances there's no harm in trying some fresh fluid but you will then need to bleed it through at the slave cylinder end because there will otherwise be an airlock. I doubt this will work, but it will be a lot cheaper than a new clutch if it does work.
