Default Master Cylinder leaking!!!

I was looking under my car and saw something that looked like oil dripping but it wasn't on the oil pan. When I popped my hood I saw that the master cylnder had brake fluid on it and it looks like it'* leaking. I didn't really notice this when I got it but it seems like it'* not leaking bad because the brake fluid is fine. It'* alittle low but but not enough to have a bad leak. Is this a sign of my master cylender going out? or maybe is that someone filled the brake fluid resavoir to much and it overflowed. I only had the car about a month now and it was broke down for about 2 weeks so really I've been driving it for about 2 to 3 weeks.

It'* on its way out. Just did mine last month. Took me about 15-30 minutes to bleed it and install it myself. Two bolts, one rubber brake line and two simple metal brake lines. Then I just took it down the road to a local shop to have them professionally bleed the wheel cylinders and calipers and now I'm good to go. Total job cost was about $115 , $60 for labor, and about $55 for the MC. See my sticky thread about "which master cylinder to get" at the top of this forum page. I chose the one with hte reservoir already attached. I beleive it was the 6 inch one.
