Live rock choice for new tank

I have a 29g biocube I have been new tank cycle for past week, I want to get LR tomorrow to add but the LFS has some rocks with GSP on them, is it risky for the corals to add to new tank this early?

If you dont have any LR now the tank is going to have to cycle more.

Assuming you're buying cured live rock that is already cycled then you could potentially skip the entire cycling process assuming you add stock very slowly. But yes, it's generally a poor idea to put live rock with coral in a tank that's cycling

Rock is fully cured but I think I will be patient and avoid corals until I am certain tank is stable

Good move. In this hobby patience is a must.
