I would not worry about them during the cycle, there is all kinds of things going on in the tank and the tank will go through several stages of a cycle. A lot of tanks will get some cyno during the cycle, or diatom algae. If it hangs on long after the cycle then you should look into ways of getting rid of it. Right now sit back and have a cold one (if your old enough) and do some reading on the hobby.

I agree wait for the cycle to be over and then check your params and figure out whats going on.
