Default Ammonia Still High

Ive started a new tank and i know about the whole cycle process.
Im using two rena XP-3 from another established tank on this 75 gallon tank for almost 1 week now and my readings are the following:

Ph 7.0
Nitrate 5.0
Nitrite 0.25
Ammonia 1.0/2.0

Ive been doing 50% water changes every other day and the ammonia still keeps going back up. How long is it expected to stay this high ? I have 1 platy in the tank that i used as a dither fish for my Kribensis tank, he doesnt seem to be struggling at all. I have tested the water 4 times in the last 2 days so i know the readings are correct.
