What did you sanitize with? If Star San, transfer while equipment is wet. Don't fear the foam.

Easy Clean may work for sanitizing even though it is not labeled as a sanitizer.
Starsan is a very effective no rinse sanitizer.
Are you racking to a secondary just because it is in the instruction sheet? Unless you are making additions to your brew, like wood chips or coffe beans, a secondary is not needed. More work, more risk for the same thing that can be accomplsihed in the primary.

Give it two weeks in the primary before your first hydrometer reading. Take another reading two days later. (Remember to make sure the hydrometer is calibrated and also correct the reading for the temperature of the sample.) If the readings are the same fermentation is complete. One more week will give the yeast time to clean up off flavors and sediment to settle out to clear your beer. Less suspended sediment means more can be poured from bottle to glass.

Another hydrometer sample will give you a visual on clarity.

Though with a RIS clarity may not be an issue.
