Gallon batch? If so ...
For the gallon kits (and most custom recipes) I've done, this seems about right. With a half packet of yeast in a one gallon batch, my experience is that the krausen falls in 2-3 days & it's ready to bottle around 14 days after pitching the yeast. Recently, I've done a couple of batches with a quarter packet of yeast and the process does go slower.
Nothing to worry about here.
Nope. While engineers often do their best in the light, yeast do their best work when they are in the dark and you ignore them .
@uberculture said it well here:
Overall, it appears you're on track for a good 1st brew experience.
