You may have a watering issue, but have you checked for pest problems? You may want to treat your plant with neem oil or an insecticidal soap if you see any traces of stickiness, which could mean aphids or scale.

Water your plant thoroughly but let it start to dry out before watering again. You can't decide to water once a week or twice a week. It's best to feel the soil with a finger to decide when it's watering time.
