Compression should be checked on each cylinder. You can remove one plug at a time and replace after compression check as to not mess up wires and firing order. Also engine should be rotated 3 to 4 times for a good reading. And as I said if compression is low add a little oil to cylinder and test again. Note and post each cylinder reading.
Minimum Compression is 100psi. So a pressure between 130 and 200 with no more than a 25% difference between cylinder is good. So let say the the pressure in 3 of the 6 cylinders is 135psi the other cylinders shouldn't be any less than 101psi and no more than 168psi
