Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I will be happy to assist you today.
The system gets charged by the low side. That is the service port on or near the receiver/drier. Although it is best to monitor both side to be sure that there are no restrictions on the system, adding a small amount of R134A to see if it gets cooler will tell you if that is the problem.
Here is a diagram of the (basic) AC system that is used on it. Number 1 is the low side, (charge) serviec port.
