RPM stays high only when I release the clutch

Another issue with the cabrio,
Changed the clutch few weeks ago but problem was before.

It's not always, mostly when the car is after a long drive.
RPM stays on 2000 when I change gears, until I release the clutch at it's point.

Problem is on neutral gear also, RPM stays high too until I brake almost completely, then it falls to the right RPM.

I susspect the brake master cylinder, hose doesn't look too good although I changed the bit that goes to the manifold.
Could it be the direction?

Could be. Air leak into manifold ("vacuum air leak") = high idle speed.
