4th day of cycling

Hello all, i'm new to the hobby and i've been reading all i can on this site. I have a 55g sw tank with about 40lbs of lr. i added two raw shrimp on sunday and my tank is starting to smell a little. my ammonia levels are barely rising. how much of a spike should i expect? i am at about .3 right now. and how long should i expect before it is really noticeable? thanks for any help you can give!!
