Ammonia Meter Malfunctioning?

So I've got that thing in my tank that constantly measures ammonia levels. I set up my tank on November 13 and I have 3 male bettas in it (divided 10 gallon). It didn't show any change by 6 days so I did a 50% water change. Now, 3 days later, it's showing alert (5 percent ammonia).

Whats going on?

I don't have a test kit and can't get one.

I've heard though that a 50% water change once a week should be okay...
