You're holding tank always should only have mostly air in it. The air in the tank helps maintain a pressure cushion so the pump doesn't short cycle. If you have a submersible pump (in the well) then the air is likely coming from the water in the line between the tank and the pump draining back into the well because the check valve in the pump has failed.
