Nitrates Up Before Ammonia And Nitrites In Cycle

JoSH-G06

Hey guys, my name is Josh. I am in the process of cycling my aquarium and I've noticed that my ammonia and nitrite levels are not going up but my nitrates are slowly going up. My tank has been cycling for 3 weeks and I should've had ammonia and nitrite spikes by now. I was wondering if I am doing something wrong.

Do you have a source of ammonia? Like a fish? Pure ammonia?

I've been dropping flakes in it every day

I have live rock and live sand that had some hitchhikers on the rock and idk if that could be a reason for that
