Does it not blow cold air? If it does then you have a full charge. If it doesnt there is a leak some where and putting more in wont help. You have to find the leak, fix it, vac the system from moisture so you dont blow up the condenser, and have it recharged.

cars don't use freon, it's R-134a. it's probably behind the passenger fender well.
