Braking Problem/Issue HELP!

So recently I've noticed that my brake pedal has gotten stiffer, not only that but when I apply pressure I feel the pedal pushing back at me. If I'm at a light with the car in gear I have to press extra hard or the car starts creeping. Not feeling safe at all. I checked the hoses and don't see/hear/feel any leaks. No brake fluid anywhere either.

I want to get this fixed but don't want to deal with the in betweens. I don't know if I should start with the brake booster or as small as the booster check valve. Just looking for someone who may have had this problem previously to give me a good start at fixing it.


Thanks for any help.
