Leaking aft weaning..should I pump?

Hey all.
I was weaning the past couple of weeks. My last pump was 4 or 5 days ago! The last one before that was 2 days ago. But now I am feeling extremely full again and am leaking. I almost never leaked during my regular pumping days.

Should I pump again for a few minutes to clear out the excess? Just wondering also, what happens to the milk that was already produced when I stopped pumping. Does the body just absorb it?

Thanks for any responses.
