Ac leaks are really common on our cars. If you want to try it yourself put in some of the AC leak finder. It's basically a glow in the dark water mixed with the freon. Get a black light and look for a leak after using the AC for a few days. Once you've found your leak then just fix/replace the area where it's leaking. Or you can take it to a ac shop.

Freon is a dangerous chemical it's tasteless, color less and odorless it will of inhaled will cut off air to your lungs. It's not a chemical to mess with. Dumping freon into the atmosphere is also dangerous and illegal. If you want to change it yourself then you run the risk of the above.

Edit: Also don't use those AC pro bottles in a can they suck. Especially the ones with leak stopper they are more likely to clog up the AC compressor and end up costing you more work, time, and money than it's worth.
