1995 4 door 1.9L Ford Escort Manual , shifting problems

Okay , So , I have replaced alot in this car for starters. I have put a newer engine , new brakes , new serpentine belt , New water pump , 2 new thermostats , a new exhaust , New Sway bars , New clutch set , etc. So when I get in my car everything is all fine and dandy , When I throw it in reverse to get out of my driveway its fine. But If I dont throw it into neutral as soon as i get out of my driveway it will stall. Then in order to get it to shift into 1st , I have to put it in neutral put the emergency brake on and pump the clutch a few times then drop the emergency brake and shift to 1st. As soon as I get my car going its easy to shift into 2nd , 3rd , 4th , and 5th , But when I come to a stop I have to hurry and shift it to 1st before stopping instead of being able to throw it in neutral and coast because if its in neutral then i have to do the whole e brake , pump , let the e brake down , and shift to 1st procedure. Any suggestions on what might be wrong ? Its obviously not my clutch or my car wouldnt start , shift , or run . Thanks .. Kyle.

Either clutch master or slave cyl or both. Could try bleeding.

Also check clutch fluid level and see if any sign of fluid leaking at either cylinder.
