I think Darkblade is right, this is the bacterial bloom. It may takes a couple of days, one week, even two sometimes before it slowly disappears. Then it means the cycle is started and you can begin to slowly add fishes.

This is normal, but there should not be any fishes in the tank before the cycle is started normally.
