Brake master cylinder holes

I've looked around for pictures and read other posts in hope someone mentions them. Point is on mine when I open the reservoir the hole furthest to the right is clear and visible now my question is... The little divett to the left, is that supposed to be a hole too? As far as I can tell I only have one hole in the reservoir that goes to the cylinder. In the picture that I attached I found online. Looks like two to me

yes there is supposed to be two holes one to feed fluid and apply pressure to the brakes and the other is like a vent so that the plunger can move freely and not sick in the full brake applied position if your brakes are not releasing then it could be an issue with the outside hole (the one farthest to the outside of the bars) if the lever is hard to squeeze then it could be that the other hole is clogged

cheapest fix is to get a rebuild kit and clean the ever lovin dog snot out of the reservoir
