OG was 1058. I took a look at the wort and there is a thin blanket of foam on top. I'm gonna just let it sit till I'm ready to move it to secondary and take another reading then.

Since I'm new to this can you explain why you would move a wheat beer to secondary? I'm following the directions on the kit so I'd just like to hear the reasoning. Thanks!

therr are differing opinions. here are mine:
1) generally, secondaries are not necessary unless you add fruit, oak or possbly dry hop;
2) wheat beers are to be drank fresh, no need to age your beer;
3) kit instructions generally reflect old outdated information.

So you recommend bottling right after the 10-day fermentation period or keeping it in the primary for 3 weeks?

Since you underpitched the amount of yeast, I wouldnt do anything (package or transfer it) until you taste it and take a hydrometer reading. It might not be ready in 10 days (10-14 days is normal ferm time for most beers w temp control & proper amt of yeast).
