Fresh brake fluid should be relatively clear, if not slightly golden. This is true for practically any type of brake fluid. Over time, brake fluid becomes contaminated. When the brake fluid begins to darken and turn black or brown, then you know that the fluid is becoming too old.

When should you refill brake fluid?
If your brake fluid level is below the 'low' marker, you should add fluid to top it up. If you check the level soon after and it is still low, you may have a leak in the brake system. This can also be caused by worn brake pads – when worn, brake calipers have further to move this draws more brake fluid into the system.22 Jul 2019
In most cases, brake fluids that are rated DOT 5 are the ones considered synthetic because they are made using silicone. Meanwhile, brake fluids such as DOT 3, 4, and 5.1 are the ones considered “non-synthetic”.
Since DOT 4 and 5.1 are both glycol-based brake fluids they are compatible with each other, which means they can be readily mixed without harming your brake system. It is important never to mistake DOT 5.1 (glycol-based) with DOT 5 which is silicone-based and should never be mixed with any other DOT fluid.4 Aug 2021
If the transmission fluid is low, it can cause the clutch pedal to stick. This is because the fluid helps to lubricate and cool the clutch components. If there isn't enough fluid, it can cause the pedal to stick. To check the transmission fluid level, locate the dipstick on the side of the transmission.
