I would advise to check your brake pads first to see how much wear is on them and also check the brake line. More info can be found at: Schwinn Tourist Troubleshooting

The pads may be glazed... roughing them with sandpaper may work, or as Quandre Mebane says. they or your cables may need adjustment/replacement.
