48hrs into cycle, rate my water please

well, i am 48 hours into putting my tank together and i am curious to see how things are going and get some advice

Set Up:

29 gallon aquarium (standard light for now)
300w stealth heater
Rena XP2 cannister filter(with carbon, bio stars and Matrix bio support media)
3 to 5 inches of http://www.aquariumplants.com/product_p/ss-1.htm
and 1 fake piece of driftwood(got tired of getting outbid on ebay)
NO FISH OR PLANTS YET

Everything was WELL rinsed before it entered the tank

Water test results as of 48 hours:
GH 180ppm
KH 0ppm
PH 6.0
NO2 .5ppm
NO3 0ppm
Ammonia 1.0ppm

Water temp 78deg

Does this all sound normal?
I was a little worried at the GH reading, should i be?

thank you for the time in your responses

Eric
