Clutch problem 1991 300E

I'm sorry if this is a novice question, but I know very little about hydraulic clutches. I just got this 1991 300E and the friction point on the clutch is very high up, almost at the end of the arc, as opposed to close to the floor.

If i'm not mistaken, you can't really adjust a hydraulic clutch like you would a cabled clutch, so i'm trying to figure out if this is a problem with the pressure plate or possibly the fluid lines....or what.

Does this problem sound familiar to anyone?

It is very uncomfortable to drive right now. I'm trying to diagnose the problem so as not to get shafted by my mechanic and possibly avoid having to buy a clutch kit.

I would appreciate any input, thanks.
