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
and 1 fake piece of driftwood(got tired of getting outbid on ebay)

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
