Had the same on my fr 150 TDI. Slave cylinder exploded as it's made of plastic. Check brake fluid level to see if it's dropped. Look for leaks from pipes and master cylinder. Look for puddle on engine undertray under gearbox bell housing.
Mine did not get fluid on clutch but changed it anyway...

Had a 1.6 tdi four years and 65000 miles sweet as a nut no problems other than servicing. Had a 1.2 dsg as a loan car when tdi was being service,completely gutless compared to the tdi revs its guts out all the time so very noisy.
