Don't think you can bleed it, but I could be wrong. They have a 1 piece tube assembly that helps eliminate that problem.

I'm assuming you mean that when you let off the clutch that it is grabbing sooner than it use to?

when I push down instead of getting hard at about 5/8s it gets hard about 1/3rd the way down and also is hard to get into gear unless above 1500 rpm. like if air is compressing. i'm new to powerstrokes and dont think my clutch is bad.

I doubt the clutch is bad either. Have you ever had an issue with the pedal not wanting to come back up? How many miles?

When I worked at Ford, (not a tech) we replaced tons of the slave cylinder tube kits for similar problems and some would keep the clutch from disengaging at all. Here is the TSB for it.

99 F-series with low clutch pedal:
There is an updated clutch master, slave and tube assembly available which is preassembled and pre-bled. This also requires use of a new clutch master push rod.
Ensure that the slot on the clutch start interlock switch is aligned with the tab on the master cylinder; misalignment can cause a loss of full master cylinder piston movement.
Clutch hydraulic system F81Z-7C522-AJ
Clutch master pushrod F81Z-2143-BA
TSB#99-1-6
