A/C Recharge Question

So I haven't had cold air in my car the whole time I've had it, and decided over time to replace parts, I've replaced both of the hoses ( the ones that are crimped to rubber and connect to the compressor/condenser) as well as the condenser. After replacing these parts I started filling with freon, ( 1 of the small cans) my gauges read a high pressure of 90 psi on the low side, and about 50 on the high side. The compressor kicks on and both pressures drop to zero, followed by the high pressure slowly rising.
Afterwards/ a few second later the compressor kicks off and the low pressure builds again. After the compressor has gone through this cycle a couple times, I get the green flashing AC light, Which I've heard is a sign of low freon, but I don't want to risk putting anymore freon in the system being that my readings are so bad.
And advice or help would be appreciated.

1 can isn't gonna be enough. You want to hit your low pressure side goal with the compressor turned on. Optimally, you'd also have had the system vacuum bled first to prevent rust inside and freezing as well.
