If you are loosing fluid you have a leak. I would pull teh rear drums and check the cylinders if you cant find anything else.

have a look on the inside of rear tyres..fluid will leak out the rear of the drum if cylinders are shoot..pretty common for cylinders to let go.check all lines and connections.if your peddle is going flat on startup you are pulling in mayor air somewhere.i had 2 bad wheel cylinders and still had brakes.

You might find your leak by loosening the MC from the booster.
