Default clutch spins

1997 super cab v6 5 speed. Transmission would go into gear but would not
move. Found clutch reservoir empty, bled hydrolic system and truck ran fine
for 15-20 miles. Tranny still engages but when you try to accelerate the
clutch slips. ideas?

brake fluid spewed all over the clutch disc from a failed slave cylinder, thus making it slip. or a warn down clutch already causing it to slip.
