Attenuation from 50 gravity points to 14 is a drop of 36, which is 72% of the original 50. There's no way to mistake that, whatever you did with the calculator.

Thursday to Sunday is too soon to be doing anything with your beer. 7-10 days is absolute MINIMUM!!!!
1.050 to 1.014 is very good progress.

Leave the beer alone for another week and a half then start checking on it.

If it is fermenting now (which it apparently is) it will have plenty of yeast for bottle priming.

GIVE IT MORE TIME; can't believe no one said that on the first page of responses! holy cow! anyone taking a hydrometer reading within the first few weeks is just too damn impatient...i know it's tough, but you'll learn: i say minimum 2 weeks even with LOTS of yeast

also, yeast will still be alive to bottled prime 2 months out...

RDWHAHB! = Relax Don't Worry Have A Home Brew.

1.014 is pretty close to done, but like suggested wait at least a week then start taking gravity every day until you get 2 or 3 consecutive identical readings.

A few days is early but I take hydrometer readings after a week when I dry hop and just to get a taste of beer at its current stage. It doesn't hurt anything as long as you don't contaminate it so I would say it's preference over impatience but to each his own.
