You might have to bleed your brakes. If/when you bleed them also take a look at the color... You could've glazed your pads, but that's typically only possible when the pads are brand new. I'd start with the simple stuff first and bleed the front brake. In a pinch you could hook up a section of hose to the bleeder, have someone apply the front brake lever, and do a quick open of the bleeder screw.
Just a quick bit of fluid in the hose is all you're looking for. Any more then that and you risk running the reservoir low (and in this case will suck the diaphram too low in the reservoir).
