90 gallon saltwater build

As you guys know we are in the cycling stage. I want to know if I have to rinse out my two filter socks?

Probably not at this point . Since your not feeding any fish they shouldn't be really catching any debris. If you notice decreased flow through them or discoloration then you might need to .

Well we are well into a week now of cycling. Check water parameters and definitely have an ammonia spike it's between .025 to .050. Now should I get the shrimp out? Or do I let it dissolve in the media bag?

Leave the shrimp in there, ammonia has to get to 5ppm. .25-.5 isn't a spike at all and won't do much good for your bioload.
