Start a new thread in the plumbing section.

Upscar, go back and post your own question, and post it in the plumbing area this time.
Also it's always best to add your location in your profile for better ansewers.

With nothing running, I'd guess bad check valve.

(I moved this to plumbing for you.)

You obviously have a leak, whether at the check valve, as DM mentioned, the line from the well to the house, or within the house. I would start by closing the valve after the tank, then watching the gauge, and you should be able to determine which side of that the leak is on. Do you have a submersible or jet pump? More details will result in more relevant replies.
