Hello

there should be a return spring inside the brake master cylinder to push the cylinder back, I'd 1st try disconnecting the pedal and see if the mastercylinder returns as it should and also confirm that the pedal swings freely as there may be a return spring on the pedal too

if the cylinder doesn't spring back it will need replacing
