1 week into cycling, ton of nitrite!

My tank has been cycling for one week. Fish less cycle. I used plain ammonia. This is my readings after a week. No water changes yet. Is this uncommon?

That's pretty quick for it to get so heavy so fast! But you are going to need to do a big WC to get those Nitrites under control so the cycle doesn't stall from here. Get the Nitrite back down as close to zero as you can, then add fresh ammonia to 2ppm. 

 

Could you also test your water source, please? That way, you can see if any of it comes from your tap.
