Hello! Currently cycling my tank & need advice

My name is Melodie. A couple weeks ago I purchased my first 10 gallon freshwater fish tank. I am currently on my second week of cycling. After setting up my tank, I was given 2 starter goldfish (which I heard are not great to start a tank with). They ended up dying at the end of the first weeks cycle and also had ich which I was trying to treat. Now I have 5 danios in the tank and was given on accident one guppy instead of a danio. This is the beginning of their second day in the tank and the second week of the tank cycling. It appears the guppy has one white spot on its fin. What can I do?

Welcome to AA Melodie!

The articles linked below talk through cycling better than I can. As far as the ich goes, I wouldn't advise trying to chase it with any products. In a cycling aquarium fish are going to be more susceptible to most any diseases due to the added stress.
