Rio 2008 clutch bite way too low

Hi all.

Hot myself a 2008 rio diesel. Very nice and cheap little car, but the bite point on the clutch is nearly at max depression of the clutch

I've had a look around and it could be because the clutch slave cylinder needs bleeding.

I'm pretty ok with doing oil services but never bled anything. I understand that I need to open the bleed bit on the cylinder and get someone to press the clutch a few times until it's just hydraulic fluid coming out rather than air. Like a radiator in a house for example.

But, as this the brakes use the same system, do all those need bleeding too?

And am I ok to just top up the master fluid cylinder after the bleeding?

Or even am I looking at the wrong thing completely to solve the low biting point?

Many thanks in advance
