Step one, take it to a shop and have it suctioned and recharged, if you have been driving it for a while and have leaks you also now have air in the system. You can try adding a small can to the system but that probably won't help.
Step two, repair what is needed, they will put a dye in the new R134a that you can see with a black light, thats used to spot leaks. Go from there..
