Sorry for the delay. Not seeing any light shine through means that there is a chick forming inside. I've never had any luck seeing veins at day 7, so I normally just candle on day 14 just before lock down.
When the light shines completely through on day 14, that means the egg was infertile and there is nothing inside. Here is a link for hatching eggs that will be of some assistance.
