Hi rossi.kelli, I'm sorry to have to say that neither of those photos are of a hot pepper (aka chilli) plant. In fact, both look like Persicaria (a weed.)
This is a close-up photo of my hot peppers so you can see the leaf shape and flowers:
The leaves are about 5 to 10cm long.
Pepper/chilli seeds need starting off in a small pot of compost, somewhere warm like an indoor windowsill. They won't germinate in the ground in the uk and are best grown in a greenhouse as they need temperatures of above 14C to grow well enough to produce fruit.
Where did you get the seeds from?
