This does sound like a leak if the Freon was originally low. You need a black light and then to inspect all of the lines, the compressor and the evaporator to look for the leak. The Freon has fluorescent dye In it and the black light makes it visible. If you have a leak that then has to be repaired. The only other way to test this is to have the system evacuated, this will tell how much Freon is left in the system. If there isn't any, then you have a leak
