I've been cycling a 5 gallon tank for a few weeks now. The ammonia levels have been coming down about a week (its a 2 ppm), however, so far, I do not have any readings for nitrites. I thought when the ammonia starts coming down that I should be getting some nitrites. Is this the case?

Yes In a week or less. Just one question, are you cycling with or without fish?

It may take longer jersysman. Maybe 2-3 weeks or so.
