I filed my return and it said 2 days to find out if it’s approved, it’s been 5 and I haven’t heard anything is this normal?

Your e-filed tax return will be in a Pending state until the IRS accepts or rejects the tax return.

The IRS will not be accepting any type of 2017 tax return until January 29, 2018

The IRS will hold all 2017 tax returns that have a tax refund which includes EIC and/or the Additional Child Tax Credit util mid-February.  They will release the tax refunds in late February if there are no errors on the tax return.

You got lucky.  Yours was one of the returns the IRS pulls for testing their systems.
