Default A/C not working - 2005 PT Cruiser

I have a 2005 pt cruiser and the a/c isn't working. Here's what I know so far:

-I have check the lines and there is coolant in the system
-I bought one of those a/c pros to add coolant and when I hooked it up, the arrow (not the one for the temperature outside), but the arrow for the system went to the red
-I checked the a/c fuse and relay and both are good
-I don't hear the click of the compressor turning on and off

I would appreciate any help, advice or info. Thanks.

I have a question, on my 2005 PT Cruiser, there are 2 service ports for the a/c, one by itself up on top that is very easy to get to, and another down by the fan in front that is very hard to get to. Which one is the one that I am suppose to hook to to charge the a/c? I know there is some coolant in it because I took the cap off the top port and pushed in the pin in the middle and some came out, so I know there is some in there, but which port do I hook to, to check the coolant or add freon to????
The top one is the one that I tried to add freon with before and when I hooked up to it, the arrow went straight to the RED.
I did some research today and did what it said, started the car, and let it run for a few minutes with a/c on (but there was no cold air obviously), then I turned it off and felt of the lines and the line on top that is easy to get to was hot to the touch and the one down by the fan, that was hard to reach seems cool to the touch or atleast definitely cooler than the other one. Did I do it wrong the first time??? I would appreciate any advice on which one is suppose to be the one to hook up and add coolant to.
