I'm guessing you pitched a whole pack of Nottingham? If you've been at 64 for a day now just let it sit and keep the temp constant. How's the airlock activity? How about the wort? Is it starting to mix around when you look in the carboy? The weak foam is an indication that active fermentation hasn't kicked off just yet that's all. I've used Nottingham a lot and it hasn't failed me yet. It has taken longer times to kick off though. I think I had one take close to 48 hours to go. Check some Nottingham threads to put your mind at ease.

Don't worry about pitching more just yet since you just pitched yesterday. Look for signs of increased activity, solution mixing faster, more airlock activity, then of course you'll know when the krausen kicks up and the airlock takes off. I highly doubt it won't ferment as it is. It's hard to relax on a first beer though. Post an update tomorrow and I bet it's moving in the right direction!

Airlock is bubbling about every 3-4 seconds. No activity in the wort yet though. I'll be patient...

Success!

Your fermentation should go with out a hitch from here on out. Try and keep the temps. in the low 60's, let it clear, prime and bottle! Then enjoy!

Let that poor little guy rest for a bit. He's been through a lot in the last few days. If it will help take your mind off things, I'll ship you a couple bottles of home brew so you have something to keep you occupied while you wait. People here do trades all of the time and I've done a few. When your beer is done, you can even send me a bottle if you'd like.

I've got krausen! The wort looks like Guinness after the pour! I never doubted it for a second.

I'd be honored to drink your beer!

And I'd be happy to send you some of mine. That way, there'll be two people saying this ain't bad!

So I got home from my long trip. It was time to move it to the secondary.

Well it's all bottled now, didn't quite get as much as I should have. But 42 is better than none. Tasted the green beer, tastes pretty good!
