It sounds like it might just need to be adjusted. I'd take it to your LBS (local bike shop) and have them look at it.
Is this a new bike? How new? If you recently bought it, or bought it a while ago but haven't used it much, chances are it needs it's initial tune-up.
New cables (shifter and brake) will stretch as they get used. New bikes need a good tune-up after an initial break-in period. This usually occurs after a month of regular riding, or about 75-100 miles. Most shops offer this as a free service either one time, one month, many up to the first year and a select few shops for the life of the bike!
Start there and let them diagnose your problem.
It's hard to figure it out without seeing and riding your bike!
