I suspect your pump has a failed valve.

If you can find parts, you want a pump kit, including valve plate(s) and gaskets.

Before you spend money on that though, what other symptoms is your compressor exhibiting that may not be quite right?

This doesn't appear to be a too expensive compressor, so weigh the cost of parts against the cost of a new compressor, won't you?
