messed up brakes

ok this started a little while ago my brake pedal started to lose pressure and go to the floor but then stop like a inch from the ground so i can still brake i dont know what it is i think it may be the brake powerbooster but idk cause i can still brake and everything and even come to a skidding stop so hmmmm cause it loses pressure but still lets me brake

First step I'd take would be to bleed the brake system. Might be air in the lines. If that doesn't fix it, then go for the brake master cylinder.

100% sure it's your brake master cylinder.

you shouldn't be driving your car. it's dangerous. you could kill yourself or someone else. swap out the master cylinder already.
