The brakes self adjust when you firmly apply the brakes while the vehicle is moving backwards.

After checking adjustment, I would check over every junction and wheel cylinder to look for any signs of leakage. Check rubber lines also.

I've had issues with air being sucked around the bleeders while attempting to bleed. You can either wrap the bleeders in teflon tape, or:
Start pressing the pedal
Open the bleeder
Press the pedal down to about 75%
Close the bleeder
Release the pedal
