Default help! First time brewing

Forgive me because I'm REALLY new at this.
I have a simple Mr Brew brew kit and have started a tart cider.
I followed the recipe and it's been brewing for 2 weeks.
The trouble is, there are still cheeries floating on top and gunk on the bottom. Other than that it's clear and the smell seems about right.
My question is, what do I do about all the cheeries and gunk?

I would bottle it and just be careful not to get the "cheeries and gunk" into the bottles.

I'll keep you posted.
I do believe you could use campden tablets prior to bottling to control the yeast.
