Fluid leak from where bellhousing meets tranny - help -

Okay, so I had been having a problem with a soft clutch for the past month or so.. so I went ahead and put in a new m/c and that seemed to do the trick but now she's back too her old ways of having a soft/spongey or completely dead clutch.. i put some fluid in the m/c and the jeep was sitting outside for a few hours i went to drive somewhere and the clutch was dead.. tons of fluid, i guess its the dot 3 since the mc was empty.. could it be the slave that's going? im not sure.. there was a bolt on the drivers side missing so i put a new one there about and hour ago but it was still dripping, I'll check it in the morning.. any input?

also first gear almost never goes in unless i pump it a sh*t ton or i turn the engine off, slide it in and start her up again, and reverse grinds - synchro prob?
