won't hurt to stay in primary for now, it's kind of impossible to put firm time frames on fermentation as there are so many variables. The airlock is really just a pressure relief valve so don't use that as concrete proof either, check your gravity readings, thats the best way to determine when your primary fermentation is done and ready for secondary
