you should add DE everytime you do a backwash as this recoats the grids on your filter.

If you just backwashed 2 weeks ago you either put to much DE back in causing pressure to rise, had algae problem/debris problem or you need to clean filter.
In most cases you need to take apart & clean, remember not all the DE comes out when backwashing & starts building up.
