String life depends on how much you play. Strings can loose their brightness in as little as a few days if you play a lot. They could last a month or longer if you only play occasionally.

Your only problem is if the problem occurs within the first 4-6 hours of playing on the strings. At that time it should be twangy and then gradually get duller

if fretted notes are sounding flat after you have tuned the open strings it's probably an intonation issue.

So it isnt really a serious problem then?

should be able to fix it by adjustment of string length at the bridge. read the set up sticky in this forum.
