Default Does this sound right?

Did my 1st 2 brews this weekend. They were AG kits from NB. I used liquid yeast and made my starters the thursday eve before. Fermentation was very active within the first day on both buckets. It is now 4-5 days later and the airlock shows no pressure in either bucket. I am getting ready for work this morning so no time for a sample for gravity check, i know that will be the indicator if it truly is done or not. But just curious if this sounds right, should i be worried? I dont plan on kegging for at least 2 more weeks regardless....

Your beer is fine. Leave it alone for at least 2 more weeks.
