Default Brake Leak

I have a 1988 Hardbody 4x4 with the v6. Lately I've noticed braking was making a creaking sound and felt like the pads were biting towards the end of a stop. My pedal was pretty much hitting the floor as well and very mushy. I ended up bleeding the brakes the other day and it helped with the braking, however I still get the groaning/biting towards the end of a stop or on a hard brake. Yesterday I also noticed brake fluid on the bottom of the driver side caliper. Anyone know what the problem might be? Do I need new calipers? I can also smell a burning plastic/rubber smell coming from the engine bay (not the brakes), although im not sure this is related as I also have a rear main seal leak as far as I can tell.

Thank you for the help
