I use a blockchain wallet and I have a transaction which has not been see yet. I have used bitcoin off and on for a long time but only have a simple understanding of how they work.

Is it just a case of waiting and waiting? Would there come a time when you would think I should worry?

Post the transaction ID here so we can help you.

You paid 120.462 sat/B

Current fees needed found here:

https://bitcoinfees.21.co/

The fastest and cheapest transaction fee is currently 240 satoshis/byte, shown in green at the top.
For the median transaction size of 226 bytes, this results in a fee of 54,240 satoshis.

It should go through eventually (0-1260 minutes) with the fee you paid if you just wait it out.  

Or, you can try to put your transaction into a transaction accelerator to try and speed it up.

You don't have to worry about the confirmation of your transaction as many times transactions get stuck even if the right fee is paid. Use https://www.viabtc.com/tools/txaccelerator/ to accelerate your transaction (Just enter your transaction ID and the captcha code). I tried adding your transaction ID but it has reached its limit right now. You can try later.

PS: It's safe to post transaction IDs.

Since some days, I am receiving transactions that get unconfirmed still 2 days after. This tool of ViaBTC.com has a system allowing a maximum of 100 pushh per hour, wich is very low. At the end 99.9% of the time when you try you see the message "max limit reached..." or something like that. I have been able to test it only 1 time, for nothing spectacular.
