It seems like the cycle is in process, however that seems strange that its already underway. Keep dosing with the ammonia until you can put it in and within 24 hours the ammonia level has dropped to zero. Also you should wait until the nitrites level is at 0.

And as for the betta, as long as your tests go well, it should be fine.
