the IRS is behind in processing returns so your situation is quite common.
you can always submit form 1040-es by mail. Tuyurbotax should have the forms but here's another source

You asked: "Should I be concerned that my Federal File is still showing as pending?"
What do you mean by that? In regard to the term you used "pending" , are you seeing that exact term somewhere?
When did you efile? Did you just recently efile in the last 24-48 hours, and if so, is the efile status showing as "pending" in your Online TurboTax account? i.e., has the efile not yet even been accepted or rejected? Or has your efiled return been accepted for processing? I assume you used Online TurboTax, so what exact efile status is showing at the Tax Home of your Online TurboTax account?

If it's your efile status that is showing as "pending", then that would mean the IRS has not yet started processing the return.

Are you referring to the IRS Direct Pay website? Here are some FAQs from the IRS website:
How does the IRS verify my identity?
"We will use information from one of your prior year processed tax returns to verify your identity. In step two, you can choose one of the last six year's tax returns for identity verification. It does not need to be the same year as the tax year for payment."
I'm getting a message that Direct Pay cannot verify my identity, what should I do?
"Direct Pay uses information from a prior year's tax return to verify your identify. The return year you use for verification does not have to be the same as the Tax Year for Payment. Make sure that you enter your name and address as they were on your tax return for the tax year you select for verification. You may find it helpful to use your most recent return, or try using your information from a different year."
