When I started the car to leave, the clock was blinking and I had a warning message about low battery.

Is this normal behavior? There was certainly some discharge of the battery over those three days (although not extreme, by any means. Should I be concerned?
Sounds like your battery is starting to go. I've left my car parked for months without starting and didn't have a problem. How old is the battery?
