One of my duck eggs is pecking internally but hasn't pipped yet, so should I turn the humidity up now, or wait till it has pipped?

Most likely you should have upped the humidity days ago. I don't know what day for ducks but when you stop turning you should raise humidity on pretty much every egg commonly incubated. Then don't open the bator until they are done hatching or you'll let the moisture escape. Since it's already hatching I would add water through the vent holes using a straw or some airline tubing (aquarium section) if the humidity is too low.
