I just opened a bottle of my Chocolate Porter last night after being in the bottles for 2 weeks. The carbonation level was very low to almost none. The flavoer is great but i would like more carbonation. Is this something that just might take a little longer because its a porter or am i out of luck?

Yeah, just sit on it a while longer. I've started giving all my beers 4 weeks before I crack one open. It's hard - but worth it.
