I would suspect a bad master cylinder but there is an outside possibility of an ABS problem causing that also. It's very hard to isolate which without just changing the master.

Does your car have ABS

Without starting your car.
Pump your brake pedal 6 times fast then hold the pedal down and see if your master cylinder holds pressure.
does it leak down with time or anything.
how far is it from bottom.
