Is it bubbling? If you didn't make a starter, it might take a while to start bubbling. I wouldn't even think of starting to worrying until the 48 hour mark.
"Round ones with the cap" I assume means bubbler?
What I like to do if I have a brew that isn't bubbling (which seems to happen a lot, my bucket sucks) is press down on the top of the bucket, increasing the pressure enough to make a bubble go through the airlock. I put my nose right above the airlock when I'm doing this, and take a big whiff as the bubble comes out. If it doesn't smell like it did when you put it in, things are probably going just fine in there!
