new water low ph

after some advice recived on this site i have been mixing my new water for my next change for 2 days now 1 more day left to make sure its all mixed properly.. so after 48 hours i tested the water. i made myself using my ro unit and red sea salt mix. amonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrate 0 so all good.. i tested the ph and its way down 7.4. i thought red sea is a very good mix. or is it because its not done mixing yet and when it is it will stabalise at the right ph.. also amonia nitrite and nitrate wont appear in the water will they if they not thee now. might sound stupid
