I'd reseat the guage. Usually brass connections are tapered, and self sealing. If not, you could try a little pipe dope.
Sounds like you have a leak somewhere (perhaps the high pressure gauge, as you suspect, but I would check everywhere else).

A bit of soapy water slathered over all your joints will help determine where the gas is leaking from.
If its only happening when things turn on and off/ I would suspect your solenoid valve.
there are no leak i dint know if it was a build up or pressure
