Looks like red slime. More likely it's cyano

Cyano is a water quality and flow issue. It is normal to see it show up right as a tank is cycling. You can siphon the cyano out with some airline tubing. Redirecting powerheads or adding another might also be of benefit, stating this without knowing much about your tank. Try to reduce feedings and do water changes as normal. Should go away.

Sounds pretty early to be done...whats ammonia at? Were you dosing with pure ammonia or with a raw shrimp? If it was the ammonia dosing method it might be that you just need to add more to keep the cycle going. Not a fan of this method personally, I screwed it up when I tried it.

I used this cycling kit I bought from the LFS but I thought it would be done cycling because I had a huge spike in nitrite and nitrates and after doing he cycle kit they all went down after about two weeks

Did you add any fish once the kit was complete?
