It should be making lots of foamy bubbles....if it isn't your yeast is probably old.​

Mine doesn't always have bubbles, but it will start expanding.

Once it expanded all over the counter and floor.

But it should change appearance.

The first time I made bread, it never rose because the water I used was too hot. But when I used the right temp (like that of what you would allow a baby to drink, or so says my mother), there were some bubbles and you could see things moving.

Best of luck.
