Fresh Water System

I have a cruising boat, C&C 29, that is equipped with a sink in the galley and in the head. We have a pressure water system that seems not to be working properly after we launched this year.

As part of our winterizing we ran anti freeze through the whole system. In the spring we filled up our tank and launched our boat. Now when I turn on the pressure water system i notice two things:

a) The pump never shuts off by itself. ( I seem to recall that it would shut after building up enough pressure)

b)When I open the tap, water does come out but then it spurts and sputters.

Is there some kind of bleeding process that I need to do?
Do I perhaps have a pressure leak?
