Co2 Pressure Drop & Leakage?

Hi Everyone, I had a 1L co2 tank and previously it only lasted around 2.5 weeks and I realized there was a leak in the regulator seal. This time when I sealed the tank I turned up the pressure and left it closed to see if there was a leak on top of doing soapy water. The pressure in the regulator didn't drop after almost 36 hours and I've been running the system for around a week or so. Suddenly last night I noticed the pressure gauge on the regulator just dropped to zero when I woke up. Normally I run about 1 bps.

Is this because of a leakage or just the pressure in the tank changing? I would be surprised if it dropped to zero.

Would love any thoughts and advice.

Thanks ahead.
