If you open and drink a bottle after only a week or two since bottling it'll probably taste a bit "green", underdeveloped, lacking in something or just a bit "off" somehow. Due to having racked into your bottling bucket at two weeks and since, as you said, there was still krausen on top, if it were my brew I'd probably aim for going a bit longer than three weeks of carb-ing/bottle conditioning before chilling for a few days to a week in the fridge and opening the first one. BUT, I don't think I could have managed such restraint on my first ever homebrew
Try one or two as you please but give the majority enough time to mature and you won't regret the slight sacrifice
