If you are cycling, just wait it out.

Once Nitrites and Ammonia are at 0 you are close to done.

The test results sound normal. Your ammonia should start going down in a while.

without seeing the first 5 results as a comparison...I think these look normal, and indicate you're still very much in the middle of cycling.
