Default Help question about my first pilsner

So I am new to home brewing and I need some input I am trying a Pilsner and have not seen any yeast floating around in my Carboy like I did with the ale I brewed. However there is Krausen and airlock is bubbling. According to the instructions in the kit supposed to leave in primary for five to ten days then transfer to secondary. however it has been 9 days still alot of Krausen I have read on line you don't want to transfer to secondary until Krausen has pretty much settled any input would be greatly appreciated also per instructions ferment as close to 42 degrees as possible we are at about 44 degrees.

I never found much use for a secondary . But then i never fermented at 42 degrees either . Only pilsner i did was at ale temps . Still I would think it would not really need the secondary . If I was going to use one I think I would wait till the krausen was gone down and all bubbling stopped and then check gravity before even thinking about moving it . No reason to open it up if it is still bubbling away .
