everytime i apply my brakes even when stationary, i can hear a hissing sound, it becomes more noticable the more pressure i put on the pedal.

i have also noticed in the past few days the brakes have become worst and worst even at the point i was pushing down as hard as possible and the brakes felt at 50%.

i havent got much time to take the car to a brake specialist as i need the car 24/7, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
