Default ready to keg?

I am hoping to keg a brew today,but when i took a gravity reading it was 1.016(the reading before i pitched the yeast was 1.048).It has been in the fermenting bucket for 14 days.As i was hoping for a lower reading than 1.016,can i pitch some more yeast or sanitize my stirring spoon and give it a gentle stir and leave for a few more days?

Yes you could pitch some more yeast, but it's unlikely it will be of too much benefit, IMHO. Stir it up a bit if you like (gently) and wait a couple more days to see if the SG is still dropping. If not keg it.

Cheers El Pistolero,
I have gently stirred both batches(the second batch was due to finish in another day or 2,but i thought it could do with a stir also) and airlock activity has picked up a little on both.
2 more days and i will keg one batch and bottle the other.
