Since you have only been playing a few months, your embouchure is probably not developed enough to handle the reed strength of 3 1/2 or 3. Try dropping back to a 2 or 2 1/2. Reed strength depends on three items: Mouthpiece opening, Embouchure and brand of reed. Also note that most boxes of reeds will vary a 1/2 strength reed to reed. So try a couple of 2's or 2 1/2's and see if the Hissing (air) stops.
