Default 1st brew, little to no carbination after 6 days

So i poped my first beer from my first batch of homebrew today. Everything tasted great except there was basically no carbination at all basically. The beer has been sitting in bottles for 6 days now. Is this to early to expect any carbination, or is there a chance i messed things up when i primed the beer?

Leave it for at least another week. They need at least 2 weeks to carbonate in the bottle.

I like to give 3 weeks before I try one, but it's really hard to wait on that first batch. Give it at least another week and you should have most of the carbonation.

Start your next batch soon, that first one won't last long.
