Default adding yeast before bottling

Do I need to add yeast to my bucket with my priming sugar? Or is there enough yeast in the batch already? The reason I ask is that I bottled off about 1liter a few days back, added a teaspoon of table sugar to it and let it sit. There is no pressure in the bottle after 4 days of sitting. Wondering if the yeast settled to the bottom and I racked off and left most of the dead yeast with the lees.

Find it hard that yeast would take so long to eat up the sugar especially when my batch took less than 48 hours to ferment out dry.

Added a touch of yeast and sugar to prime along with my steviol sweetener. Guess we will have to see in a few days what happens.
