Is it a common problem that the battery keeps on draining when the car is not used for a week?

I replaced the battery because the car wouldn't start. I would find it with a window rolled down or the spoiler out. Once I gave the battery a boost it would start immediately, radio and dash lights around radio will not work either ( I don't have an option to punch in code for radio as all lights are off). I am wondering if its a common problem and does it have a quick solution? I checked fuses and they are all good.
thx

You have a short circuit, parastic draw somewhere that's eating up the battery overnite or something is still on to consume battery voltage-glove box lite/trunk
