how long should a compressor hold it's pressure?

I am new to compressors. I just purchased a used 30 gallon/5.5 hp compressor (craftsman compressor 919.165310). It is working fine, but I notice that it will lose all it's pressure if shutoff and left alone for about 2 days.
Is this normal? obviously there is a very small leak(s), but i don't know if this should be expected or something i should address.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...
