There is a schraeder valve at the top of the tank. Check the air pressure with a tire gauge. It should be two psi lower that the cut in pressure. eg: If you have a 40/60 pressure switch, the tank should read 38 psi.If it is lower, charge it up with air. If it loses the air again, the tank needs to be replaced. The gauge at the tank is rarely accurate so I would an outside sillcock pressure gauge to determine your system pressure so you can set the tank pressure properly. Good luck!

Is the pump running when power is ON?
Put ear against pipe and listen for pump.
Have you installed a check valve?
Check vlave lets water pass through the pipe and enter tank, but the valve closes after pump shuts off and keeps water from falling back down into well.

Water pressure decreases as the water runs

Probably a clog in galvanized pipe.
Expansion tank is not whole-house pressure regulating tank. It is localized protection for plumbing exposed to high pressure caused by very hot water.
If you house has pressure regulating valve, then that can be a cause.
For low water pressure in household, the following link might help:
