    Probably low on refrigerant.Easy enough to recharge with a kit from Advance Auto,or any auto parts store.(Even a place like Jiffy Lube will do it) Not unusual for a car that age or mileage.My 2002 Taurus has needed an annaul recharge,once ,may be twice, for a few years now.
    If it goes warm in short order,you have a leak in the system,possibly a bad compressor,and that gets expensive.
