    Once the fuel pump has worked the air out of the system, there should just be fuel in there.

    Sounds like you have an air leak somewhere from the tank to the fuel pump.

    I took it off and filled it with fuel and put back on , then tried starting it only ran a few seconds and then the level was down about 1 1/2 ". was wondering if this is normal?

    Not normal to have any air in the fuel system.

    Check, or better yet, replace the fuel lines and clamps. You have an air leak either in the lines, or in the ring seals for the filter.

    You could take the unit off, seal off the exit hose, and apply mild air pressure to the other hose. Spray some soapy water to see if the seals are leaking...
