Well many people chose not to use carbon, but I always like to use it. Carbon removes things such as discoloration and odors etc. If you were to use any fish medications the carbon will filter out the medicine so that would be bad, but other than that I personally see no reason not to use it.
About it only lasting two weeks I've had the same bag for about a month or so and haven't had need to replace it, but I probably should sometime soon.
