I have had my batch in the fermenter for a week and cant bottle due to my schedule. Will it affect anything to let it sit for another week?

It will be better to wait. Generally, beer isn't ready to be bottled in less than three weeks and some beers benefit from longer.

Look in the beginners forum at some of the sticky threads for lots of info. Cheers!

++ to just letting it sit. Most people here will have their beer sitting at least three weeks total before bottling.
