Just be patient - how long have you been waiting?
Only about 30 minutes. It's now 2/unconfimred so it looks like I was just being impatient. I'm very new to this, so I get a bit paranoid.
First off, if it says 2/unconfirmed then you should be fine
Each confirmation comes from every block that is solved. If miners' luck is low and blocks are being solved slowly, it takes more time for the transactions to be confirmed.
Second, in my opinion embrace your paranoia. You may thank yourself for it later. Bitcoin is new, growing, and carries higher risks. I have done my research enough to know what most of those risks are. It's better to be safe, ask questions and continually try to learn rather than to assume the safety of your assets.
Glad to hear new people are making Bitcoin transactions out there.
