Plant problem - seedlings stretching and drooping

Welcome to FC Rubin :)
I can see a few issues here my friend. The droopiness is caused by overwatering/lack of oxygen to the roots, the only remedy is to repot immediately into a good soil with plenty of perlite and water in gently with half a plastic cup of liquid. If this is not possible then you must absolutely stop watering them until they perk back up.
If there are no drainage holes in the bottom of the cups get them out of there ASAP as they will die if left.
The other thing that stands out is that the seedlings are stretching a lot, this means they are searching for light, which in turn means there isn't enough light.
Are you using only natural light? if so it's not strong enough. You need to get either a cfl or an off the shelf led light bulb on them, you can buys these for a desk lamp you may have lying around and jimmy something together.
Good luck with your grow, any other questions don't hesitate to ask! :)
they stretch trying to reach the light and the stem gets too thin to hold the weight,,it really is that simple

Thanks for the advice i finally figured out that i needed more light so i baught more lights. I habe posted pics of my plants on here as they are now. I just used this grow as an experiment grow so when i baught seeds i knew what to do and what not to. I did finally buy some seeds and had a seed given to me. I baught 3 barbra bud seeds and i had a purple punch seed given to me

Got you. Ideally you'd have to big fairly big holes and fill with a decent soil mix or use raised beds made from tyres etc filled with soil mix but they'll do just fine in good sized pots too :)
