Let it go through it's cycle then recheck the levels again. I would leave the PH where it's at, that's not a crucial level.

Hard to say with not knowing the size tank and # of fish. 55 to 100 gal range with 3-5 fish i would guess a week longer. I would add some salt in your tank to lessen the effects of ammonia and nitrites to the fish. i teaspoon per 10 gallons, and replace the salt if you need to lower ammonia with a waterchange.

Ammonia is 3 mg/L and ph is 7.8. How can I lower them. It might be a good idea to mention I'm still kinda cycling my tank. Been probably 2 weeks now.
I would add one full dose of Amquel plus (detoxify ammonia and nitrite) + add some peat to your filter. You probably have a high level of HCO3- (hihg KH) so peat will also help soften the water. Black water extract will do too.
