Well once a seed germinates, which is the root or sprout coming out of the seed it will establish a root and grow a sprout...the sprout will make its way to the top of the soil and through it to grow your plant. If you are planting seeds depending on what variety you plant will depend on how long it takes to germinate..anywhere from a couple of days to up to 2 weeks for some things. Once your seedling is produces its second set of leaves you should be able to safely transplant it to a larger container. When you transplant it bury it in the soil up to its first set of leaves. If you need more info try to give us a little more information on what you are growing and we may be able to help you better,
