How long does this take to grow?

I planted my cilantro April 5th and it sprouted about a week ago when I put it into a temporary pot, but it's looking very thin and small. Is that how it's supposed to look while it grows? And how long does it normally take?

Cilantro leaves are ready to harvest 45 to 70 days after seeding. Cut exterior leaves once they reach 4 to 6 inches long. Or, cut the whole plant about 1 to 2 inches above the soil level to use both small and large leaves. The pic I just posted they are very thin as well.
