When the slave cylinder starts leaking, the clutch is contaminated WAY before any outside indication of a leak is evident. In fact, you can pump out just about all the clutch system brake fluid and never see external indication.
Since it is a 2005 I assume you still have warranty, so get it to a dealer. You either have a transmisson seal leaking or the slave cylinder has failed. Either requires clutch plate replacement along with the replacement of the failed seal or slave cylinder.
You don't have many miles on it, so no need to replace the engine rear oil seal while the clutch is out unless it shows signs of leaking.
DO replace the transmission input shaft seals if it is the slave cylinder, and if it is the rear transmission input shaft seal that has failed replace the slave cylinder.
Drill the drain hole while the job is being done!
