Leave it sit for 2 more weeks.

Yes...

I leave mine in primary for almost 4 weeks if possible.

(And start drinking beer from the store that does not use twist offs. Save the bottles...that's part of the fun)

+1 or even more.

You bottle after 1 week? You may consider experimenting and letting this batch sit for about 30 days from brew day and then bottle. See what you think of the finished product.

Yeah,3 weeks is average for my ales. That gives it time to finish fermenting,clean up by products of fermentation,& settle out clear or slightly misty before bottling.

Everything I make sits in primary for at least 1 month. A little more time in primary can't hurt your end product - but too little time can definitely hurt it.

Do you mean how can you tell if your beer is fermenting?

Well,if you see some krausen foam on top of the fermenting beer is one way. Best way is with a hydrometer.
