I would recommend buying your own test kits (liquid) so you can test your own water. One week you most likely haven't even started the cycle (I can't remember how you were cycling - raw shrimp or pure ammonia?) so testing regularly now will very important to keep you fish alive. Also, do you know how to acclimate saltwater fish properly?

A word of advice, don't always trust the fish store selling you things - people on here want to help you for free, to see you succeed, not make a sale. I am almost certain your tank is not cycled and now your new fish are in danger. Def get those test kits and test daily, you may need to perform frequent water changes when the ammonia levels get high...
