By coolant you mean freon ? Is the compressor running now or has it stopped ? If it is running continuous and no cool air only heated air is coming out of vents. You might have a problem with the blend door in your HVAC box. If compressor is not running now after you charged it and was short cycling after you charged it. It would say you got a pretty good leak and the freon has leaked out again

Being only a year old, you should be able to get this covered under warranty, if the problem resulted from a leak. Blowing HOT air, versus AC simply not getting cold, is usually caused by the temperature blend door being stuck open to the heater core. Either the actuator failed or the door itself got stuck, or you have a faulty climate control switch/setting. Most of the time it's the actuator wearing out from age, but with your car being so new, it might be something in the climate control switch or a module. Check with the dealer and see if this is covered under warranty.
